As president William Ruto is still keen on fulfilling his campaign promises by commissioning projects, his latest move in kibra risks being stopped as per the latest reports.

As relayed by the Star, the nubian community has moved to court to stop government projects in Kibra.

Speaking via their lawyer Danstan Omari, the community is accusing the government of building a project on their land without their consent.

Their Chairman Shaffi indicated they were granted the land title deed by the former regime of Uhuru Kenyatta in 2017 and therefore it's unlawfully for the current government to build any structure under their land.

" 288 acres of land in Kibra belongs to Nubians and the government cannot come and take it away in disguise of slum upgrading unless they sit down with them," Shaffie explained.

Apparently, this is a huge blow to president William Ruto who has always been ready to kick off his affordable housing units project in every County.

Ruto is not in the country recently called on Raila Odinga's led opposition to give bipartisan talks a chance instead of staging mass action demonstrations.

Despite doing so, Mr Odinga vowed to return to the people is Ruto's Kenya Kwanza camp won't cooperate as Azimio la Umoja one Kenya Coalition are demanding.

Lastly in your opinion, do you think it is right for the nubian community to bare the government from building structures in their land?
