Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has asked land and property owners in the county to secure their valuables in the ongoing demolitions.
Leading by example, Sonko has lent his support for the demolition of his own property, about one acre in Buru Buru.
â€œEven myself, there is a land I bought in Buru Buru. About an acre of that land is part of road access and we shall start by demolishing that wall. It does not matter how well connected you are, if you have built on a road reserve or water ways, that structure has to go down,â€ said Sonko.
â€œAll county public roads/ accesses including my buru buru plot & Maina Kamandas, All grabbed land in all the estates within Nairobi reserved for playgrounds, All grabbed public social halls; All encroachments on public land including houses constructed on sewer line & Nairobi water pipeline, â€œhe pointed out.
Sonko further indicated that he would not allow impunity to thrive under his watch citing that he would better be a one-term governor and leave a legacy.
â€œBetter be a one term Governor and leave a legacy than entertaining grabbing of public land/utilities,â€ he added.
Among the proposed buildings set to be demolished according to the Governor include firestations, hospitals, schools and markets.
â€œProposed land for Gigiri & Ruaraka fire stations; Highbridge hospital in parklands; New Muthaiga Thigiri ridge county dispensary & Nursery school; Grabbed Pumwani hospital expansion structures; Eastleigh county Market; Mwariro county market; Langata primary school land; St. Catherine primary school land; Buruburu girls school land; Martin Luther primary school land; Kamkunji Secondary school land; Langata sec. school land; grabbed land reserved for South C market; Grabbed land reserved for Nyayo estate police post, â€œhe said.
