The demolition will follow the Environment and Forestry Ministry’s announcement of evictions from homes built on Ngong Forest land. The announcement was made by the ministry’s cabinet secretary Keriako Tobiko. “I’m hereby declaring the immediate commencement of the recovery process of the land in the Ngong Road Forest that has over the years been illegally acquired,” Mr. Tobiko said last Friday in a directive that was issued by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“Over 70 per cent of residents have mortgaged their title deeds to banks and financial institutions. What this means is that banks will now be reluctant to give loans using title deeds as collateral,” Sunvalley Phase 1 Estate resident Waswa Wekesa told the newspaper. Mr. Wekesa spent Sh. 10 million to build his home.

According to a related report, the demolitions targeting Ngong Forest land grabbers will affect 800 homes. “The owners of the multimillion-shilling illegal developments, some of them multi-storey residential apartments, lavish homes and business premises in parts of Lang’ata and Racecourse, will not be compensated,” said the report.
