MCA condemns Athinai Firm demolitions,calls for intervention

Soin Ward MCA Irene Chebichi has condemned the Thursday’s demolition at Athinai Firm rendering over 500 families homeless.

The area MCA says as leaders they were not consulted before the decision was taken.

“This morning we just heard that the bulldozers were on the ground demolishing the structures yet we were not informed as leaders” she said.

According to the MCA, if prior communication had been made, the families could have looked for alternative place to settle.

She added that the demolitions were done contrary to the human rights as they was no any notice given to the over 500 squatters.

The MCA is now calling on the government to look into the matter and address the issues of IDPs in her ward whom she says are yet to be compensated.
