Demolition of South end mall fails to continue

We, however, assure the public that this has not slowed down our quest to do away with buildings on riparian land,” said Mr Wanjau. He dismissed reports that the demolitions had been halted by a court order. “Whoever is feeding the public with false reports should stop. Our work is cut out for us and this time round we will not spare any building for the sake of our river,” he added. The owner of the building, former Bobasi MP Stephen Manoti, through his lawyer Mariaria Nyaboga, criticised the demolitions by the multi-agency task force and accused it of practising double standards. He criticised officials from the National Environment Management Authority (Nema) for approving the construction of the building, then turning around to condemn it.
