Toronto Raptors President Masai Ujiri’s Giants of Africa basketball movement will be hosting a week long basketball camp despite the tension in some parts of Nairobi.

The movement has facilitated the construction of basketball courts in Nairobi slum areas such as Kibera, Kayole and Mathare. This has encouraged the youth to spend their time in sport activities rather than criminal activities.
