The municipality has been making effort to redevelop the inner city slums predominantly by relocating dwellers to the outskirt in the last one and half decade. The available literatures have rarely indicated the multi-dimensional impacts of relocation on relocatees. This document identified that the approach has led to loss of economic activities, social ties and accessible urban services. On the other side, it pinpointed that relocation has some sort of benefit for relocated people-better housing condition-accessible water tap, adequate toilet, kitchen, sanitary, sewerage, healthy living environment and alleviate burden of water collection borne by females. Nonetheless, the effort has resulted in unsustainable redevelopment. Failing to consider the multidimensional nature of slum, neglecting local people participation, overlooking dwellers means of income and lack of cooperation between various public sectors were major factors that contribute to unsustainable redevelopment. Therefore, there is a need to extenuate such gaps to attain sustainable slum redevelopment.
