Mathare Residents Resume Illegal Construction Along The River


mathare illegalMathare residents have resumed illegal and dangerous construction along the river banks of Nairobi river that cuts across the slum.

This comes barely a few months after the Nairobi County Government demolished demolished some buildings that had been constructed at the river banks to avert deaths that would have occurred during last year’s El Nino rains.

According to the residents the houses constructed along the river banks are cheap and affordable to the many jobless slum dwellers.

Meanwhile Environment CS Charles Sunkuli has stated that the ministry is planning to destroy all illegal structures along Nairobi River banks and those found culpable will face the law.
