National Environment Management Authority has today morning demolished Southend Mall along Lang’ata Road over claims that it was allegedly built on riparian land.

Bulldozers descended on the building early morning bringing down the building to the utter shock of onlookers and owner.

The demolition is being conducted by a multi task-force agency comprising of NEMA, KURA and the Nairobi County Government.

Former Bobasi MP Stephen Manoti is the alleged owner of the building constructed in 2008.

Meanwhile Kenyans are calling for the demolition of other key buildings built on either road reserves or riparian lands.

Among the buildings that have been mentioned for demolitions include; Taj Mall in Embakasi, Nakumatt Ukay which is sitting on riparian land, and Kahama Hotel built on a road reserve in Ngara.

Kericho senator Aaron Cheruiyot is among the many Kenyans who have called for the demolition of Taj Mall that has allegedly caused inconvenience in the construction of the Eastern Bypass Road.

Here are some of the reactions;

 

“Taj Mall”this should the next stop after southend mall…… fairness should reign… southend mall

09:04 We want this down too “Southend Mall” “Langata Road” via

POINT OF CORRECTION PLEASE! NEMA is coming for building built on riparian (river) reserve e.g. Southend Mall, Nakumatt Ukay, Two Rivers etc. KeHNA is responsible for buildings built on road reserve e.g. Taj Mall, Kahama hotel, Sameer & vibandas along major roads.

We expect Nakumatt Ukay Mall to come down with speed after the demolition of Southend Mall
