With demolition of buildings put up on riparian lands going on in Nairobi, President Uhuru Kenyatta has said officials who made approvals for the premises to be built on such lands will be punished.

The president spoke on Thursday during the inauguration of the Prism Towers on Third Ngong Avenue, Nairobi.

"We are not going to just punish those who built. I want to assure you that we are going after all those who issued those permits. Those ones will be prosecuted. Be they county officials, land officials or Nema officials, they will be prosecuted because they are equally to fault as those who built," President Kenyatta said.
