On Monday 5:30 am the National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) conducted demolition of Java House and Shell Petrol Station in Kileleshwa, Nairobi.
The demolition was done so as to reclaim the land in Nairobi. Government agencies such NEMA, KURA and Nairobi County Government have vowed to continue with demolitions until they recover government land within the city.
The most affected structures are those that are located near rivers. Notice of three months and another one of seven days is said to have been issued but they had not yet vacated the land in question.
Java said that there operations are still ongoing and nothing is affected.
Some tenants however said they were not given ample time to vacate condemning the demolition terming it as inhumane.
