Government demolishes houses at the middle of the night at Ruai citing thee land belongs to the government. 

"On 8 May, elected leaders in Nairobi met interior CS Fred Matiangi following complaints about demolitions in Kariobangi. The CS and security heads in Nairobi assured us there'd be no demolitions for the next 4 months as the country tackles this devastating pandemic. What has changed?" starehe Mp Charles Kanyi alias Jaguar said.

"The happenings in Ruai are of inhumane nature and Very wanting. A government can't authorize demolitions in the wee hours of the night without any notice. This and what happened in Kariobangi are very disheartening and cruel. This is pure barbarism, " he added.

Earlier this month, the government commenced evicting hundreds of people who had bought property next to the disputed 3,000-acre piece of land to pave way for the expansion of the Dandora Sewerage Treatment Plant in Ruai, Nairobi.

"Over 60 houses demolished in Ruai overnight by the government. If CS Fred Matiangi believes the demolitions are legal, why are they being carried out in the cover of darkness? Why can’t they wait for the Corona pandemic to end? The Kenya government shouldn’t behave like criminals, " an activist Boniface Mwangi said.

However, some insiders claim that the land in question is expected to be occupied by a private developer.
