Nairobians in Kangemi and Mountain View estate yesterday protested alleged land grabbing by Korean tycoons.
The project is a proposed construction of an office block costing Sh80 million on a riparian land.
The project is on plot number L.R. No. 209/138/49 Varma Road Nairobi CBD for Mountain View Estates.
They also claim Koreans have acquired the piece of land illegally since the area is a swamp. They are urging Nema and City Hall, National Land Commission to intervene.
The public yesterday planted trees on the land as a mark on their territory in protest of the approval by City Hall.
Locals in the area say if the office complex is built then they will be pushed out of business since they have farms in the area.
