Residents Sue Developer for Breach of Construction Laws

By Maureen Kakah

Kiamumbi residents have protested a move by a private developer to construct a high density residential flat without approval from the construction authority.

Through their association, the Damview Estate Kiamumbi, the residents sued Mr Mugeria Kinyua, the National Construction Authority (NCA) and the National Environmental Management Authority (Nema).

They accused Mr Kinyua of starting a construction in breach of clear directions from the NCA. They argued that unless he is restrained, he intends to proceed regardless of their concerns.
