In Summary
  • The houses had just been completed.
  • The owner said he was not given a notice and said he would sue Kenha.
  • Kenha said the demolished houses were built on a road reserve.

Property worth millions of shillings was on Saturday destroyed after the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) bulldozers demolished 10 houses in Nakuru’s Kiamunyi Estate.

KeNHA Public Relations Officer Charles Njogu told the Nation that the houses had been constructed on a road reserve.


"The owner of the houses encroached on a road reserve by about 10 feet. We also have in our possession filed notices to him to demolish the houses, something he has not done," he said.

Mr Njogu said the agency would not allow people to encroach on road reserves.

However, the devastated owner, Mr H N Kiriika, a civil engineer, said KeNHA did not issue any notice before the demolition.
