Kenya: City Hall Demolishes Mutindwa Market in Purge on Illegal Structures

Nairobi — The Nairobi County Government on Thursday morning demolished the Mutindwa market situated in the Buruburu area of Nairobi.

He stated that traders had been given notice as early as April and had been cautioned to vacate the area ahead of the exercise.

"This is an exercise that was long overdue. We had given them notice in ample time and once we start, we will not stop until all illegal structures in the areas have bene brought down," he stated.

Some who did not heed the warning scrambled to save their belongings after being tipped off by their colleagues about the exercise, which kicked off at about 3am.
