Street Family Bedroom

Ghetto Radio took a visit to senti,Mlango Kubwa near Eastliegh, where they found these street families who had improvised bedrooms for themselves.

The bedrooms are made of a lot of unused clothing and sacks. They have arranged them in a special way and enclosed them. They however aren’t 100% safe.

Whenever it rains, they have to sleep on the wet stuff and since they have no clothes to change, they just stay till with the wet clothing till they get dry.

One would mistake their bedrooms for stacks of potatoes but in real sense, it is people who have orderly slept there. That is literally their bedroom.
