Tenants forcefully evicted from houses in Nairobi West

28 May 2015, 09:52 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Officers from Nairobi City County yesterday evicted tenants who were still living in buildings that were marked for demolition in Kahawa West.

Stephen Mwangi , the county chief officer of lands said the tenants of the buildings were given notices to vacate the building one week ago but failed, forcing the county government to forcefully evict them.

“The affected buildings had already been audited and marked as weak structures and unfit for occupation by NCCG and the NCA and notices issued accordingly.

“The poorly constructed houses pose a huge risk to the residents since they may cave in at any time,” Mwangi said.

The county government has so far inspected 4,000 houses in the city, with 55 of them being marked as unfit for living due to their poor state of construction and their tenants given eviction notices.

Governor Evans Kidero urged Nairobi residents to be vigilant and adhere to notices issued by the NCCG and its partners, to save lives. 

“We continue to ensure that we conduct surveillance and clamp down on poorly constructed buildings in Nairobi,” Kidero said.
