Residents of the condemned block in Mathare scrambled to wrap up utensils and other items in bed sheets and stuffed plastic bags with clothes as workers ripped out door and window frames to prepare for machinery to destroy the structure.

The Kenyan authorities have identified 258 buildings considered structurally at risk and which could be pulled down, leaving thousands of people to find new homes in a city already struggling to keep pace with its growing population.

A woman carries her belongings out of a building earmarked for demolition in the Mathare neighborhood of Nairobi. Kenyan authorities are stepping up evictions of poorly built buildings after a six-story block in Huruma district - which lies next to Mathare - collapsed on April 29 after days of rain. Officials said it had been condemned before it crumbled and said it was not clear why it had not been pulled down. The death toll of 51 people could have been more if some residents had not seen cracks and fled shortly before it fell. REUTERS/Goran Tomasevic

Children look at their neighbors in a building earmarked for demolition in the Mathare neighborhood of Nairobi. Knocking down dangerous buildings also adds to the housing shortage in Nairobi, which is estimated to have a population of more than 4 million, almost double 15 years ago. Keeping pace with housing for a growing population is a challenge afflicting cities across Africa, where millions of people every year are leaving the fields and pouring into cities to find jobs, spawning spontaneous and ill-planned new suburbs.
