Kibera is the second biggest slum in Africa, after Soweto. It houses approximately 1,000,000 Kenyans in substandard conditions. Its narrow, dirty streets are filled with barefoot children and idle youth.

In late 2007 and early 2008, Kibera was home to a large part of the post-election violence. Gangs, street kids, rivalries. It was the most unsafe place to be in the city.

In the aftermath, many groups, especially youth groups, made an effort to fix up their slum. They left the same message scattered throughout. Today, politics in Kenya are still rocky, and I hope the youth of Kibera stick to these words.
