In this video, you will meet Mr. Abdulai Kanu, a resident of the Portee-Rokupa settlement in the eastern part of Freetown. He describes the spatial injustice residents experience, specifically through the unequal distribution of services between the formal and the informal parts of the neighbourhood, and the daily impact this has on their lives.

The settlement of Portee-Rokupa is also described in Step 2.9, where Ms. Sellu talks about its importance for the city economy as a fishing community.

It is located at point 13 on the Freetown interactive map.
