Nairobi City officers have demolished 15 illegal structures along Kiambu Road on Friday morning.
According to City Hall’s director of operations Peter Mbaya, the structures were illegally erected on the wall of Muthaiga Police Station causing insecurity.
Speaking to the Correspondent on Friday, Mbaya said the structures were also on a reserve road.
“These structures cause a lot of insecurity within the area and it is against the law to build on road reserves,“ Mbaya said.
He, however, said the traders had been given a written notice of evacuating the place, with the last one being a 24-hour notice.
Mbaya said unlike other demolition operations, there was no resistance by the traders.
“If one knows they have done an act against the law, they don’t fight back. We are pleased with least the traders are showing a positive attitude towards the operations,“ Mbaya said.
He urged traders who have encroached on road reserves and built on the pedestrian pavement to bring down their structures before they are demolished by the city officers.
Earlier this week, the city officers had demolished illegal structures and buildings along Nairobi River in Kariokor.
The demolitions have expanded across bus terminals including Ngara, Muthurwa and the Nairobi Bus station in the city centre.
