Celebrities from the hood of Kibera
This hood is known for all the wrong reasons. From uprooting railway lines during demonstrations to illegal electricity connection, insecurity, poor sanitation and a myriad of other issues. That aside, the largest slum is a tourism hub with the high and mighty visiting to probably gloat at the poor living standards of the slum dwellers. Slum tourism is the in thing and Kibra has not been left behind. The current president of the US Barack Obama visited when he was the Illinois senator among other key personalities. Kibera has a good reputation too-it had the best performing primary school Kenya. Although the glory days of Olympic primary school are gone by it produced the highest number of pupils who went to national schools. We take a tour of the slum to have a glimpse of some of the celebrities trace their roots from Kibra.
