The demolition of illegal structures constructed along the roads in the area has been ongoing for a few days now and this is beinging a lot of confusion in the area.

Illegal structures have been demolished to pave way for a bypass that is to make its way through that area and ease on the congestion around the Nairobi Central Business District.

A few days ago, the Cabinet Secretary for Interior Security, Dr. Fred Matiang'i disclosed that the residents had been compensated but they had refused to leave the area.

This morning, anti-riot police have been called in to ensure that the tension in the area does not escalate since the people are really restless about the demolitions.

The construction of the highway that passes through this area will still go on despite the objections of the people of Deep Sea slums in Parklands, Nairobi.

Here is a video of the incident.
