The plan is to stop illegal development and remove all illegal structures that have no proper documentation.

One of the affected resident says that he has not payed the months rent because they are not sure if they are going to be evicted or not, people are claiming they have documentation to show they bought the land.

“The MP of the area Hon George Theuri told us he would come to tell us the way forward but till now we have not seen his presence,” said an aggrieved tenant.
