Take Your Nonsense To Hell, Sonko Tells Pangani Eviction Victims


Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has vowed not back down on the housing project in Pangani that saw more than 50 families left homeless in forceful midnight evictions.

Sonko in a statement says that he has no regrets or apologies for the evictions that rendered a bedridden cancer patient homeless.

“Take your NONSENSE to hell. Those not paid are the ones who refused to take the money, and we are not going to pay them. Let them go to court. We shall not allow development plans to be politicised,” said Sonko

” The affordable housing project was supposed to start in 2016 but due to bad leadership and politics nothing happened…We have no regrets or apologies to make. However, our offer still stands,” he stated.

According to the governor, all the tenants had been compensated with Ksh. 600,000 to relocate to other areas in order to pave way for the construction of the new 1588 housing units.

He states that those who were ambushed on Monday night were people who had pocketed the county’s cash and refused to leave.

“The likes of senior citizens like Mzee Gitu Kahengere and many other God fearing tenants who cannot lie complied with the agreement and vacated the houses but there are those who after taking the money refused to vacate and instead took the county Government to court even after showing them all this goodwill,” said Sonko.
