In pictures: Flying toilets

Amref has constructed a total of 286 pit latrines across the Kibera slum.

All the units are in use and are contributing to the reduction of the "flying toilets" menace.

And residents are now leading a campaign to convince the landlords to provide at least the space of a room per renting block for the construction of toilets.

Until this is achieved, Kibera will remain an eyesore.
