Kibra in pictures after massive demolition

Current situation in Kibra

The 5 am demolition saw security officers deployed to oversee the process meant to pave way for the construction of a new road.

Apart from homes, schools, churches and community based NGOs offices were also affected when the earth mover flattened structures at the largest slum in the country.

Human rights group, Amnesty International condemned the demolition stating that KURA had gone against an agreement they had to postpone the process.

"The demolitions and forced evictions betray the agreement reached by the Kenya Urban Roads Authority, the Kenya National Human Rights Commission and the National Lands Commission to undertake a rapid Resettlement Action Plan (RAP)," said Amnesty International Executive Director Irũngũ Houghton.

However, KURA dismissed the allegations by Amnesty stating that thousands of families had already been resettled.

"kindly note that the RAP was completed on Friday and that about 2000 households occupying a space of 10 acres out of 600 acres are affected. stop lying for fundraisings sake!" KURA tweeted.
