Trouble with Kibera plan?

A recent report in the Kenya Times alleges that rich outsiders are trying to scam the UN-sponsored upgrading of a portion of Kibera by registering as residents so they can get the free or low-cost apartments that will be built.

Though the Kenya Times is not always the most reliable paper (it is the house organ of KANU, the political party of former strongman Daniel arap Moi), real estate interests have long been trying to grab a portion of Kibera, and it's not farfetched to think that they're at it again.
