Demolitions of unsafe buildings in Nairobi County in collaboration with the National Government will cost the tax payer Ksh. 1 million every day for the excavators.
City Hall does not have the machinery for mass demolition according to Planning and Land Executive Christopher Khaemba and has engaged the Ministry of Public Works, the National Youth Service and the military.
He said about 200 residential buildings are expected to be demolished in the next six months.
The demolition of unsafe buildings in various parts of Nairobi County have been initiated after the April 29 collapse of a house in Huruma Estate leaving about 50 people dead and property worth millions of shillings destroyed.
Deputy Director of the National Disaster Management Unit Pius Masai said the demolition will be determined by the available machinery.
