8. Kiambiu (Kenya).


Around 50,000 people reside in Kiambiu, a slum in Nairobi. Children residing in this slum have to walk miles to reach their schools. However, the good news is that some water and sanitation projects are being designed to improve the standard of living of the people living here.

Dharavi Mumbai, India.


"But Dharavi also has something else: A GDP estimated at as much as $1 billion. Nationmaster lists 24 countries with GDPs smaller than that."
(and that is just what is reported to the taxing authorities) and of year 2011.


as of 2016 GDP is estimated excess of 2.8 billion dollars (unofficial sources)

there is a silver lining in every dark cloud
read through the article , it is a very interesting article from neutral foreign sources.

I don't agree with that. I have been to almost all the states in Nigeria, what I noticed is that 75% of the land mass are stil untappedl forest. Why can't people move to those places and developed those places? Instead of been jampacked on a small piece of land
They will make those untapped forests a slum too.

9. Agbogbloshie (Ghana).



This slum city is located in South Ghana. It is popularly known as Sodom and Gomorrah. It has been labeled as the largest waste dumping site in the world. Agbogbloshie slum dwellers face serious health risk from the electronic
dump site located here. Around 80,000 squatters hang around this site and deal in scrap metals.
I once read a book that was based on life on this slum

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.

You know you're telling a bold shameless lie about Kiebra slum having of 2.5 m residents yet the whole of Nairobi has only 3.5m residents. Sensationalism feels good to bring others down but facts are golden.

1. Kibera (Kenya).


Kibera is the largest slum on the outskirts of Nairobi. In fact it is the largest urban slum in Africa. Some reports suggest that the total population of this slum may be around 2.5 million. That is around 50 percent of Nairobi’s population. The slum is divided into several villages which include Gatwekera, Kianda, Kisumu Ndogo, Lindi, Laini Saba, Siranga, Makina, Mashimoni and Soweto East.

What part of shomolu is in Ikeja and the slum is around where? undecided

Edited: shomolu is in Ikeja division of Lagos (makes no sense though, as they are both local government)

I am pretty sure Ilaje shouldn't be on that list, we have larger slums that should occupy that.

Yes! Edited! There is no point having Ilaje on this list, if you have shomolu already!

Or there is no point having shomolu on this list if you have Ilaje.

Ilaje is in shomolu local government area. So one has to leave for one Sir.

In the image, that red point signifies Ilaje, now, you would see that the border or the end has the slum, sure.

My issue is having the both on the list.
