Nairobi - An MP has joined constituents in demolishing a church allegedly built on land belonging to a school.

Kasarani MP John Njoroge Friday joined area residents in destroying Redeemed Gospel Church which has allegedly been built on land belonging to Clay City Secondary School.

The Redeemed Gospel Church was torn down by Njoroge and residents angered by the obvious grabbing of land in which the school was built.

" We will not accept cases of private developers taking land belonging to schools and using it for their own gain. We will take action even if it means on our own devices," he told News24.

Irate members of the public tore down the temporary iron sheet structure and threatened sever action if anyone dared come back to the piece of land.

" This is bad manners. Where will our children read if their land is stolen," Hannah Wangari an area resident commented.

The church Pastor was not available for comment.

Incidences of land belonging to schools being grabbed have been at an all time high with President Uhuru Kenyatta last year stating that all land belonging to schools be gazetted and well fenced to bar private developers.
