Show Notes:

Africa is one of the least urbanized parts of the world. But that's rapidly changing.

Africa's rural to urban migration is leading to an increase in poor urban dwellers living without access to basic services like adequate housing, water, sanitation, and roads.

According to Peace Studies Lecturer Timothy Gachanga, this African urban poverty is leading to revolution.
