In Summary
  • The Narok County Government had earlier issued a one-day public notice to kiosk owners in the town ordering them to pull down their structures
  • The county government also brought down illegal kiosks and open air markets which had mushroomed along public roads and road reserves.

Illegal structures along water ways in Narok Town were demolished by county officials on Tuesday night as the county administration made attempts to respond to raging floods that have swept through the town in recent days.

Flash floods over the weekend caused destruction, with businesspeople at a market near the main bus stage losing their goods.

DEMOLISHED

The Narok County Government had earlier issued a one-day public notice to kiosk owners in the town ordering them to pull down their structures, but it was ignored.

“All kiosk operators are hereby directed to demolish them from the date of this letter, failure to which the county government will demolish them at your own risk and cost,” stated the notice dated November 21.

It was issued through Mr Justus Rutto, the county Chief Officer for Physical Planning and Urban Development.  

The county government also brought down illegal kiosks and open air markets which had mushroomed along public roads and road reserves.

FLOODING

Businessmen claimed they had been given a one-week notice and that it was not clear which structures were being targeted.
