Sakaja Says His Government Will Issue Two Years Notice Before Any City Evictions

Nairobi Gubernatorial member Johnson Sakaja has promised that, if elected, a two year notice will be issued before any eviction in the area.

If possible, add that affected people have been relocated before demolition.

We have recommended that people who need to be evicted from public or private areas be given a two year notice. These incidents when people go from house to house and come home homeless, or worse they are woken up by a tractor at midnight, must end, said Sakaja.

Last week, William Ruto, a candidate for the presidency of Kenya's federation Kwanza, vowed to "end all illegal evictions and demolition" if he was able to take over the Presidential election in August.

In presenting his manifesto, Ruto described the spectacle seen in the recent demolition across the country as inhumane, unconstitutional and should never be allowed to happen again.

Commenting on Kariobangi's 2020 ouster by the government, Ruto said he would not allow this kind of demolition to damage the lives of Kenyans.

We will not tolerate illegal demolition of houses like this that does not follow proper procedures, he said, adding that if the demolition was carried out his superiors would provide adequate notice and provide compensation where necessary.

The Chief of Njenga has been dealing with demolition for the past eight months.
