“Maji ni Haki – Water is Our Right”: Pipes, Politics and Informal Water Supply in Kibera

Presenter: Nupur JoshiPh.D. Student, School of Geography and Development, Agnese Nelms Haury Fellow.

In Kibera, Nairobi’s largest informal settlement, longstanding water issues and the state’s failure to provide affordable and accessible water to the residents has given rise to what Kiberians call, ‘Water Cartels’. On the one hand, these cartels play a crucial role in making water accessible to the people of Kibera while on the other hand, they have monopolized water supply making it expensive. This talk will explore the complex knots of water supply in Kibera, elaborating on the role of the state, youth groups, NGOs and international aid.
