Nairobi: Several Families Left Homeless After Demolitions To Pave Way For Road Construction

More than over six hundred families that were residing in Nairobi's Deep Sea Slums have been left homeless after the goverment demolished their houses to pave way for the constuction of Sixth Parklands road.

Authorities claimed that the shanties were built on road reserves and have been delaying the completion of the road that connects Waiyaki way and Limuru road.

However when the Nairobi Regional Commissioner James Kianda and the Kenya Rural Roads officials visited the area, the residents thought that there could be a public participation forum regarding the issue but unfortunately it took unexpected twist.

The agenda of the visit was to clear a paving way for the completion of the remaining section of the road which was agaist the public expectation.

The officers urgued that, the residents occupying the stretch had been compesated and even served with eviction notices and were therefore expected to vacate the road corridor as soon as possible to pave way for the road construction.
