Muthurwa Residents Vow to Stay Put in Housing Row

By Pauline Kairu

Residents of Muthurwa estate have rejected an order to move out of the houses by the Kenya Railways Staff Retirement Benefits Scheme.

This follows a notice published on the Daily Nation on Thursday, asking the tenants to vacate the estate by the end of the month, as per a court order on December 15, 2015. The order has been in place since January.

The defiant residents, however, said the notice was illegal and in violation of other ongoing court cases they have instituted over a similar matter.
