Construction of three buildings alleged to be belonging to Amboseli Institute in Thika sub county were on Tuesday halted by the National Construction Authority (NCA) for failing to comply with the authority’s regulations.
Regional NCA Director Arthur M Mungai told the press that they had been alerted by National Environmental Management Authority (Nema) and the county government of Kiambu that the constructions had not been approved.
He added that the owners of the buildings were unavailable at the site and in the company of the administration police officers, they were able to mark them as ‘shut down.’
The three buildings were not registered with NCA, and had not met other requirements like hoarding, fencing and identification of contractors through erected notice boards designating the firm in charge of the construction.
He noted that if the owners or the contractors don’t report to NCA in the next 14 days, they will be forced to halt the constructions completely.
“If they don’t avail themselves before the authority within 14 days, we will be forced to revoke their licenses and those of the contractors,” he said.
The officer vowed to continue the crackdown on rogue contractors and building owners who do not adhere to NCA regulations.
