We want him out from our area, we want our ecosystem back, Parklands resident to develper

Parklands’ angry residents want a developer who has been putting up illegal structures to  bring them the love and comfort  they had and cease from doing any further constructions on the site in question.

They also want him to reconstruct the nearby houses he demolished, bring back the indigenous trees that were at the place and give them back their peace.

The residents said that the project was illegally initiated  without  approvals from the  relevant Authorities.

They also said that the project lacked proper sewer line plan and indigenous trees were cut down and the entire environment destroyed in totality.

“ Mugumo  is  among  the  indigenous trees that  were brought down. The entire environment has totally been destroyed, you can see some of the houses are  damaged by the developer who did not poses even a single approval document,” said an agitated resident.

According to  an audio that has since gone viral widely social media , Hon. Fuad  Hussein a Nairobi Member of  County Assembly  from Eastleigh Airbase is said to have been the mastermind of the project.

The said  MCA was heard insulting  to an agitated man accusing him of blocking him from proceeding with the illegal constructions project.

When our reporter visited the site early today, it was established that the  construction was ongoing, and a lot of trees had been brought down despite President William Ruto’s efforts of tree planting however investigations were ongoing.

This comes few days after the National Construction Authority stopped the developer from proceeding with the construction work.

Through a notice to the developer, the NCA stated that the works were illegal and no legality was followed in the entire process.

“ In exercise of powers granted under section 23(2) of the National  Construction Authority act no.41 of 2011 and following the inspection carried out on the works at your constructions site by the undersigned , the works were found to be NON – COMPLIANT on the following items(s) marked (X) and are  hereby  SUSPENDED with IMMEDIATE  effect,” the NCA stated.

The construction works was going on along Mwambao Road in Parklands within Nairobi County.

Just adjacent to the said works, another rogue developer AMEEY homes has erected some structures that the resident wants the state to pull them down.

Last weekend , residents raised alarm  through city lawyer Daniel Ngoli of Legal Trust Fund  Alfred Ndambiri, a resident called on the state to act to stop the constructions of the said works saying that they were illegal and environmental hazard.

They also cited the mode of approvals and whether it had a well-planned sewer line.

The residents had told the NCA that  no clear mode of approval was granted and that the rogue developer had illegally demolished houses from the nearby building including the property belonging to the Assumption Sisters of Nairobi.

“ Since the work began on Monday, January 9th we have not been served by a public sewer line and the developers had no plans and we just want to tell the state that the  proposed project was  a ticking bomb to the area resident in coming years,” he stated.

The neighbors who  include  the Regina Pacis monastry of the Catholic Church, owners of a guest house in an adjacent piece of land whose walls are said to be already damaged.

Responding to the suspensions,  Ndabiri and other area residents  thanked the NCA for the good work done .

Ngoli on his side called on the state to bring that the adjacent  AMEEY Homes structures that were constructed illegal and safe the future tenants from a catastrophe
