Hundreds of families have been left homeless and impoverished after a bulldozer demolished a Nairobi settlement in 2010, wrecking homes and market stalls. Having full ownership of the Kabete NITD settlement, the government has made repeated attempts to clear the slum, which it established in 1974. Amnesty International is developing Furushwa, a digital mapping website, to enable residents and activists to send alerts when an eviction occurs and mobilize support.
