Buildings On Nairobi Wetland to Be Demolished

A developer who is putting up commercial buildings on riparian land has been warned against continuing with the work.

The Buildings Inspectorate, which falls under the Lands ministry, said the construction of Alina Villas on Lower Kabete Road in Kibarage Valley, Nairobi, is illegal.

“That is riparian land. We shall pull down the buildings,” the inspectorate’s secretary, Mr Moses Nyakiongora, told the Nation during an interview.
