Demolition of illegal buildings in Huruma to resume


The government is set to resume demolition of illegal buildings in Nairobi’s Huruma slums this week.

National Building Inspectorate Chairman Moses Nyakiongera says this follows the release of funds by the treasury to aid the demolition exercise.

According to Nyakiongera Huruma has the most unsafe buildings compared to other areas in Nairobi.

The demolition exercise is being carried out by a multi agency team consisting of National Environment Management Authority, Nairobi County and the Nairobi Regeneration Committee.

Seven people were killed when a six-storey building collapsed in Huruma in April 2016.

Another three died in Kingston in the same estate when a building collapsed in June, this year
