Demolitions are ongoing at Mukuru Kwa Njenga slums in Nairobi to pave way for construction of the Nairobi Expressway.
The government asked those residing along the road reserves to vacate, with Nairobi Regional Commissioner, James Kianda, adding the expansion of Catherine Ndereba Road will connect the Nairobi Expressway with Industrial Area and also open up the slum for business.
“This road will act as an exit from the Expressway at a link road that is being constructed around City Cabanas junction. Businesses that are situated along the road, like Jua Kali are expected to pick up,” said Kianda.
“Plans were underway to start putting up the railway station, but we realised that it was not going to serve any function since it could not be accessed. The road will however enable residents access amenities like schools and hospitals,” Kianda told press.
Kianda also asked residents to cooperate with constructors, explaining some public utilities that had been targeted could not be realised.
"The Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) and security officers will supervise the demolition of the informal structures that have been set up. We ask residents to cooperate with the contractors," he said.
