The Green Bulldozer- Why Kenyans are in love with it

The Green Bulldozer

The bulldozer is a nightmare for owners of buildings that are set to be brought down

Netizens wasted little time to praise the green giant

Buildings found on riparian land and road reserves have been demolished this week but one thing has caught the attention of Kenyans is a green bulldozer.

Spotted at Southend Mall and during the demolition of Java Coffee House in Kileleshwa, Kenyans have now labeled it as one of the most feared ‘monsters’ this week.

Crushing everything that sits on its path, the bulldozer is a nightmare for owners of buildings that are set to be brought down, with President Uhuru Kenyatta firmly backing the exercise.

Netizens wasted little time to praise the green giant and its driver, whom they called one of the most powerful people at the moment.

Here are some of the reactions:

It brought down Java house and shell along kileleshwa road, demolished southend mall. It should land on Taj Mall. It is green, the colour of environment.— Elijah Okemwa (@elijah1334) August 10, 2018

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday asked responsible state agencies to prosecute all government officials found culpable for allocating riparian and public utility land to private developers.

At the same time, the Head of State supported the ongoing demolition of structures illegally erected on riparian and public utility land saying this is part of the proactive efforts by his administration to decisively deal with runaway corruption in the country.

‘We must discourage corruption and encourage county governments to demolish properties on riparian land,” he said.
