Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria on Thursday hit out at those behind the evictions in Kariobangi saying it was ill-timed.
Taking to his social media pages, the legislator said he acknowledged that the move is aimed at paving way for an ‘ultra-modern’ city project but could have been done at a later date considering what the country is currently going through.
“I understand that the Kariobangi Sewage evictions are meant to clear the land to set up sewage disposal for an ambitious forthcoming Ultra-Modern City project. But for crying out loud it’s not that the Ultra-Modern City project is being built tomorrow.
“How does one reconcile their conscience to see women and children evicted when they are suffering from lack of money, acute food shortage, unforgiving rains and battling with Corona Virus?” asked Kuria.
Adding: “How does it benefit you to own the whole world and lose your soul? You will burn in hell”
Residents of Kariobangi Sewage Estate On Monday woke to the sound of bulldozers demolishing their houses.
The demolition was conducted by the Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company and left over 5,000 families homeless.
