Sunday August 12, 2018 - Nairobi Women Representative, Esther Passaris, has opposed the ongoing demolitions of illegal houses saying it will badly effect the economy of the entire country.
Speaking on Saturday at Eldoret Sports Club, Uasin Gishu County, Passaris said that the Government’s decision to demolish houses in Nairobi is scaring away investors.
“The country is going through difficult times since houses constructed by investors are being demolished without following legal procedures.”
“It is time the County Government of Nairobi in collaboration with the National Government to stop the unnecessary demolition of houses which were constructed after owners received approvals from relevant Government agencies to construct the houses,” Passaris said.
The ODM elected lawmaker also challenged elected leaders to work around the clock and serve their electorate as by the campaign promises.
“This is not the time for politics.”
“Elected leaders should be ready for criticism from opponents since they will remain awake for the next five years to serve the electorate,” she said.
