Kibera residents plan major protests over demolitions

0 703

Kibera slums residents are set to meet the Kenya Urban and Rural Roads authority as tension builds in the area following the impending demolition of their structures.

KURA last week issued a vacation notice to the residents living on road reserves on Ngong Road-Kibera-Kiungu Karumba-Langata Link Road.

The demolitions which were supposed to start today are set to pave way for the construction of the road.

Reports indicate that the residents are planning major protests in the area if KURA insists on going ahead with the demolitions without providing an alternative residential place.
