[The Star]

A lobby group in Mombasa has threatened to sue the Municipal Council of Mombasa and Nema for allegedly approving constructions at water catchment areas. The Genesis for Human Rights Commission has said 500 houses are built on water catchment areas. Programme officer Caleb Ng'wena said the constructions interfere with the smooth flow of water. "We are going to sue the physical planning department of the council, Nema and the developers who have developed in the water catchment areas," said Ng'wena.
