AfricaRanking: 20 Worst Slums In Africa. by Explorers(m): 6:01am On Jun 09, 2016
A slum is a heavily populated urban informal settlement characterized by substandard housing and squalor. While slums differ in size and other characteristics from country to country, most lack reliable sanitation services, supply of clean water, reliable electricity, timely law enforcement and other basic services. Slum residences vary from shanty houses to professionally built dwellings that because of poor-quality construction or provision of services have deteriorated into slums.

Africa is a huge continent with a population of more than 1.1 billion. The continent’s population is set to double by 2050. More than 60 percent of urbanized Africans live in slums. They do not have adequate access to safe water, sanitation and other infrastructure. Their houses are of poor quality and are not secure. Kenya has one of the biggest slums in the world.
Here are the 20 worst slums in Africa.
