50,000 buildings in Nairobi risk demolition for lack of construction approval


Over 50,000 buildings in Nairobi County may be demolished because their owners failed to seek City Hall’s approval to construct them.

Developers of the buildings have been give one month to seek approval permits following the expiry of the six-month period given by Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero for them to do so.

The Nairobi County government has approved building plans worth Sh168.8 billion in the last nine months after the passing of the Regularisation of Developments Bill by the county assembly.
