Nema demolishes South End Mall

South End mall located on the junction of Lang’ata road and Mbagathi Way is currently under demolition.

About 4,000 buildings are earmarked for demolition in an operation to clear illegal structures from river banks in Nairobi.

The demolitions spearheaded by the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) started Wednesday morning.

The script is the same in other parts of the city where rivers have been choked by buildings set up on riparian reserves, on river banks, wetlands and even right on top of rivers.

The operation expected to take two months kicked off Monday in Kileleshwa.

A Java coffee house within the Shell petrol station and perimeter walls of several residential apartments in the upmarket estate were pulled down.

Both the Ukay and Westgate shopping malls in Westlands  have reportedly been mapped and marked for demolition by Nema.

In 2016, Nakumatt Ukay in Westlands was temporarily closed when floods washed through the supermarket, destroying property of undisclosed value.
