Kibera residents lament lack of compensation months after eviction


Exactly two months after the eviction of over 2000 families in  Kibra slums to pave way for  Ngong Road-Kibera-Kiungu Karumba-Langata Link Road , the compensation process to victims still lags behind with the affected families accusing the Kenya Urban Roads Authority and National land Commissions of playing mind games with them.

Shafie Ali from Makina  says they have attended several meetings  chaired by KURA officials but nothing fruitful has come out of it.

Tomorrow  there will be another joint meeting  involving KURA, NLC and residents over  the same and NLC commissioners are expected .

‘It difficult to establish who is saying the truth between the NLC and KURA people what we want is compensation for all the victims.’’ Shafie added.

Meanwhile the residents  have denied  causing troubles and blocking the on-going work as alleged.

One of the area MCA however, told Ghetto Radio News that there were scuffle yesterday between those working on the road and area youths over unclear circumstances.
