Information

Kitisuru Ward

Kitisuru is an upscale residential suburb of Nairobi. There are several residential neighborhoods with schools and places of worship. Kitisuru is located approximately 9.5 kilometres (5.9 mi), by road, northwest of the central business district of Nairobi.

 

Parkland/High ridge Ward

Parklands, Nairobi, commonly referred to simply as Parklands, is a neighborhood in the city of Nairobi, the capital and largest city in Kenya. It is divided into numbered avenues. The name arises from the proximity of the area to City Park, Nairobi.

Parklands is located approximately 5 kilometres (3.1 mi), by road, north-northwest of the central business district of Nairobi.During Kenya's colonial days, the British demarcated the area as a residential neighbourhood for civil servants. During the 1940s and 1950s Parklands was one of the most congested suburban areas of the Nairobi metropolitan area. In the second decade of the 2000s Parklands is a mixed commercial/residential neighbourhood. The relative availability and comparatively reasonably priced land in the area attracts business and residential real estate development, away from the relative lack and exorbitant pricing of real estate in Nairobi's central business district, to the south of Parklands. Parklands has a significant population of people of Asian descent.

Kangemi Ward

Kangemi is a slum in Kenya located, like many other slums in Nairobi, on the outskirts of the city. It is bordered on the north by the middle class neighbourhoods of Loresho and Kibagare and Westlands on its west. Its southern border connects with Kawangware, another large slum and its eastern border connects to Mountain View, another middle class enclave. It is on the road connecting Nairobi with Naivasha. Kangemi likely has more than 100,000 residents. While it is a multi-ethnic slum, the largest group of residents consists of the Luhya tribe.

Kangemi is located in a small valley. The slum has no sewerage. About 20,000 persons belong to a Catholic parish based in Kangemi. Kangemi High School exists in Kangemi.
