LSK opposes the ongoing demolitions and urges UHURU to stop them!! Here is their advice to Jubilee and MIKE SONKO

Friday August 17, 2018 - Law Society of Kenya (LSK) has opposed the ongoing demolition of private property saying the Government should consult with stakeholders before demolition of buildings.
For the last two weeks, buildings worth billions of shillings have been demolished in Nairobi with the grand goal being to reclaim the Nairobi River.

In a statement on Thursday, LSK President Allen Gichuhi asked for clarification on what is to be destroyed - whether structures on riparian land, illegal ones or both.

“We urgently require that this clarification be made to avoid malicious destruction of private property," Gichuhi stated.

He added that the society wants the report of properties identified for demolition made public within the next seven days through the Kenya Gazette. 

The lawyer further said that he is concerned about the effects that short notices and demolitions are having on innocent tenants and third parties.

“The law demands that adequate notice be given,” he noted.

“Article 47 of the Constitution enjoins the State to ensure citizens are accorded fair administrative action when their property rights are affected,” he added.
