Environment CS asked to explain Nairobi demolitions

Earlier in the week Environment CS Keriako Tobiko appeared before the Senate Committee for Land and Environment to explain similar demolitions that left a number of Nairobi residents evicted from their houses.

"We’re concerned because the demolitions left people homeless. Others lost property worth millions of shillings yet the buildings were approved by the government," Nyandarua Senator Paul Githiomi who chairs the committee posed.

CS Tobiko responded saying that the decision to demolish structures in Nairobi was made by the Nairobi Regeneration Programme which is co-chaired by Governor Mike Sonko and Tourism CS Najib Balala.

"I would be lying if I respond to the issues that led to the demolitions. The decision was made by the regeneration team of which I’m just a member. I cannot purport to speak on its behalf," Tobiko stated.
