The governor added further that it’s unfair for the Railways cooperation to take back the lands demolishing structures and the land will remain idle.

“I want to tell you business people we are not responsible for demolitions of your business places it’s Kenya Railways if it was county we would have given you notice to vacate the premises” said Governor Jackson Mandago.

According to governor Mandago he pointed that the Kenya Railways could have allowed people to carry out their business until the economy recovers fully so has to carry out their work.

“I wish Kenya Railways could be sensitive enough the economy is picking up slowly after coronavirus pandemic but you go ahead to add more injuries” added governor Jackson Mandago

The second term governor who has transformed the Eldoret Town stated that the county government of Uasin-Gishu too have loss the revenue avenues after several business operators who obtains operating license in the county was affected.

The demolitions exercise by Kenya Railways on operators perceived to have encroached the company’s lands started few months ago in Nakuru where many business operators encounters huge losses after their houses were demolished.

Many Kenyans have accused the company alleging that they leased the lands from Kenya Railways for approximately 25 years but the company revoked the lease deal after 5 years which has plunged many to losses.
