Kamukunji is located outside the City Centre of Nairobi and has long been a center for political discussion and politics. The neighborhood has a large Muslim population and has historically been an example of Christian/Muslim harmony.  Recent grenatde attacks, however, have threatened the status quo and at times led to retaliatory violence against communities perceived to be behind the attacks.

In Kamukunji, SNA-K has worked closely with KCBONET and PEMA.
