MP's mall demolished by National Environmental Management Authority

8th August, 2018

Workers and owners of Southend Mall on Langata road have suffered a blow after bulldozers descended on the Sh1 billion mall on Wednesday morning. The mall that stands upon Mutuini-Ngong River on Langata Road is owned by former Bobasi MP Stephen Manoti.

The demolitions begun on Monday by a multi-agency taskforce comprising of NEMA, KURA and Nairobi County Government and are aimed at reclaiming the grabbed wetlands in Nairobi.

There is a heavy police presence at the scene to ensure crowds do not disrupt the exercise and traffic on Langata and Mbagathi Road is not disrupted.
