NEMA demolishes Java House, Shell fuel station outlets in Kileleshwa

The Shell fuel station and Java House outlets along Arboretum drive in Kileleshwa have been demolished by the National Environmental Management Authority.

The demolitions are part of an ongoing multi-agency exercise to reclaim riparian land and road reserves.

Nema officials on site said proprietors of the two service providers had been notified three months prior and an additional seven days of the impending demolition which started as early as 5:30 am Monday morning.

The proprietors of the affected outlets however say they were not given ample time to relocate further terming the exercise as ‘inhumane’.

Questions have however been raised on how licences for the construction were issued to begin with.
