Demolitions at Mukuru Kwa Njenga: Residents living along road reserves asked to vacate

In Summary

  • Government has asked residents living along road reserves in Mukuru Kwa Njenga slums to vacate.
  • Nairobi Regional Commissioner James Kianda says expansion of Catherine Ndereba Road will commence soon.

Demolitions are underway at Nairobi’s Mukuru Kwa Njenga slums, to pave way for the construction of the Nairobi Expressway.

Residents living along road reserves, especially on Catherine Ndereba Road, have been asked to vacate immediately.

Nairobi Regional Commissioner James Kianda says that the expansion of the Catherine Ndereba Road will connect the Nairobi Expressway with Industrial Area, for the benefit of residents.

“This road will act as an exit from the Expressway at a link road that is being constructed around City Cabanas junction. Businesses that are situated along the road, like Jua Kali are expected to pick up,” said Kianda.

“Plans were underway to start putting up the railway station, but we realised that it was not going to serve any function since it could not be accessed. The road will however enable residents access amenities like schools and hospitals,” Kianda added.

The Nairobi Metropolitan Sevices in conjunction with security officers will oversee the demolition of informal structures that had sprung up, with residents urged to cooperate with contractors.

Area MP Benjamin Gathiru and MCA, Kianda says, are in agreement with the plans, and will help in ensuring the exercise is carried out smoothly.
