Uhuru orders arrest of these Gov't officials

Presidential orders!!

Speaking during the unveiling of Prism Towers, located in Upperhill area, Mr. Kenyatta said that the demolition of such property will continue until the land is reclaimed.

“We will continue to demolish properties constructed on riparian lands, equally punish officials who made approvals for those properties,” he said.

He added that the efforts were being made in a bid to fight rampant corruption in the country.

“We are doing everything to discourage corruption. It is possible to do clean business in Kenya, this is what we want to encourage,” Kenyatta said.

While constructing a building, developers seek approval from various entities including the National Construction Authority (NCA), National Environment Management Authority (NEMA), the County Government among others.

"We are demolishing because we have made Nairobi uncomfortable even to its own citizens. Those who approved those buildings be they County officials or officers must be held to account," he said.

The head of state's declaration comes a day after Southend mall on Lang'ata road was brought down by NEMA.
