The residents of Mukuru kwa Njenga whose houses were demolished 20 days ago are now suffering in heavy rains and cold  being experienced in the city.

The residents  who are currently living in make-shift houses  blamed the government for not honoring its promises of rebuilding them new structures.

 “It has been hard with heavy rains and we are appealing to president Uhuru Kenyatta to come to on our rescue, the last time General Badi  was here he said he was sent by president to intervene into our situation and ensure we have a new life but till now we haven’t  seen anything. He promised to give us iron sheets, woods and other building materials so that we construct our houses again 10 days later nothing to show.’’ David Omwera told Ghetto Radio News.
