KURA continues with demolition of Kibera structures

The Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) continued with its demolition of structures erected on the proposed link road in Kibera for the second day.

Bulldozers rambled through the shanties even as local leaders questioned the manner the demolition has been undertaken.

As the demolitions to pave way for the construction of the link road from Langata to Ngong road entered day 2, more locals expressed outrage wondering what next if left for them.

A section of local politicians allied to ODM party toured the area claiming the demolition was done in an inhumane manner.

Parents and the sponsors of Mashimoni squatter primary school were left wondering and pondering on the future of the displaced pupils’ education.

Many locals spent the night in the open air, forced to conduct their household routines in full view of everyone even as the bulldozer continued to clear the area.

This group of elderly people from the community who ran a horticultural venture were left to contemplate their future after their investment was reduced to debris.

Many locals had relocated after a notice was issued but those who had nowhere to go were left chancing in hopes that the d day would not come.
