QUARRY OWNER THREATENING TO EVICT SQUATTERS IN THIKA.


A number of families in Mukunike B village, Thika East Sub-County are living in fear of eviction after a quarry firm threatened to destroy their premises for stone mining. They say that they have lived in the area for over 20 years before this trader came and displaced about 50 families.

They claim that the private developer have been using the police to accomplish his dirty mission. Efforts to get help from the deputy commissioner were fruitless since he is said to be in the view that the land in dispute belonged to the investor. This has made them believe that the local adminstration had been compromised.

"We have camped here for two weeks now because we fear we might be attacked and killed by his gang. We believe he (the DCC) has been bribed because he said he has no time to listen to us," said David Njiru, a resident.

They are now appealing to the government to intervene and solve this impasse.
