Buildings close to Wilson airport face demolition

27 November 2013, 11:49

Abuja - Owners of homes and businesses near Wilson Airport may lose their property after a security audit report released by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) recommended that they should be demolished.

The recommendation could see about 400 houses, a hotel and Uchumi supermarket brought down, Daily Nation reports.

Apart from posing threats to passengers, crew and aircraft, there are fears that the buildings may be used to house terrorists who may carry out their activities at the airport.

Kenyans on Twitter commented on the proposed demolition, some citing other cases that have not been mentioned in the plan.

“Neighbouring billion shilling homes face demolition over Wilson Airport safety; aren’t #Carnivore and #Splash PLUS #UhuruGardens also close,” @StephenAnanda posted on Twitter.

Another one read: “Uchumi - Langata; Phenom & Five Star Estates near Wilson Airport recommended for demolition by KCAA.  Deemed a security risk to airport users,” @NoelWandera posted on Twitter.
