Kwa Punda Residents Fear Fresh Eviction


Kwa Punda residents in Changamwe on Tuesday hired youth to keep watch throughout the night, fearing further demolitions.

At dawn, the 30 families had been evicted by youth armed with pangas, rungus and axes.

Three people, including a 12-year-old girl, were injured.

The youth were allegedly hired by a private developer who claims ownership of the 70 acres.

Changamwe police boss Joseph Muthee said developer Ibrahim Salat paid Sh25.6 million compensation.
