Even after Amnesty International together with UNHCR called on the Kenyan authorities to halt the forced evictions in Nairobi settlements that have left hundreds of families homeless and destitute, The Nairobi Metropolitan Service headed by Badi is organizing demolition and eviction without notice at Mukuru Slums.
In an interview at Reuben FM, a local Radio Station at Mukuru Slums, Badi said that the government is forcefully going to demolish informal settlements and repossess the land then construct good roads and houses for the same evicted Kenyans.
The residents of Mukuru Slums, are already living in poverty but just like those evicted from Ruai and Kariobangi must be prepared to see their homes and livelihoods destroyed without warning.
Last year, Governor Mike Sonko told the residents of the populous informal settlement in Embakasi their land is public property.
The executive order that Sonko issued last year stopping the demolition of houses in slum areas still stands.
Sixty percent of Nairobi residents reside in slums. Therefore, we cannot allow the demolition of their houses by a few individuals who are acquiring land and court orders fraudulently.
Sonko has always asked the national and county government officials to desist from evicting slum residents.
These mass demolitions must end.
