That chaos are slowly building up in Nairobi’s Kayole area is no news, what is shocking to many is that this is happening right under the nose of all government agencies in the area.
This is despite constant and procedural reporting to the mentioned agencies from the police, National lands Commission and area administartion.
Owners of plots of lands in the Sosian estate are now pleading with the government to avert a crisis that could end up being bloody.
“We have gone to court, won cases, went ahead to win petitions over our properties but the interest on our properties does not seem to stop,” Sosian Residents Association Chairman Mwangi Irungu said.
The Chairman stated that the land in question sits on Lower Savannah ward in Embakasi East and was legally acquired in 2007.
“We obtained court orders barring any unlawful invasion of our properties by Kiambu Dandora farmers company who are working with the local administration but they have purposely failed to respect cour orders.” Mwangi stated.
According to files retrieved from two properties in the area, area administarion led by District County Commissioner and police officers are seen leading demolition of walls and properties.
The Kiambu Dandora farmers company argues that the land that is fully developed from 2007 is legally theirs, a statement that has been challenged in court as the parcels of land were legally issued to residents by the government.
Mwangi said the association has written to President Uhuru Kenyatta, the National Security Council, Ministry of Interior among other top government offices to help solve the build up.
“Our only resolve now is with the national government because it is evidently clear that most offices have been corrupted leading to the continued avertion of justice,” the Chairman said.
