Rising food prices hit Nairobi slums

Communities in the slums of Kenyan capital are surviving on food that is hardly fit for consumption.

    According to a global survey by the UN, the price of meat, dairy products and some cereals all rose last month.

    With Africa’s slums growing at a rate exponentially faster than most countries, many residents in these areas cannot afford to buy the food needed to keep themselves healthy.

    The survey also found that an estimated third of Kenyans living in urban areas are chronically malnourished.
