THE Mombasa County has warned developers that it will start bringing down houses constructed outside the city plan anytime. Lands executive Francis Thoya yesterday said lack of a proper plan has led to congestion.
Thoya said the county government will not allow the mushrooming of unplanned buildings in the city saying unplanned constructions have jeopardized the city's infrastructure which includes drainage and road systems.
"I am putting people on notice. Anybody who has or is constructing without a plan should be ready to demolish the structure. You better regularize your construction or we will pull it down and this will start very soon," said Thoya.
He was speaking to the Star in his office yesterday where he named some of the affected areas as being Changamwe, Miritini, Vikwatani in Kisauni and Mwakirungi areas.
He said the county government has also started marking buildings including those in the central business district whose temporary occupancy licenses have expired.
