The Kenya Power And Lighting Company (KPLC) countrywide demolitions of buildings encroaching on its land where powerlines pass is ongoing.
The exercise kicked off in Nairobi last month and has seen buildings in Njiru, Chokaa and Saika flattened.
Millions of shillings have been lost by these landlords.
Question is, who approved the buildings?
We covered the story of demolitions as below:
What if KPLC does erroneous demarcation and demolish an ‘innocent’ building?
Here below, we showcase the brief story compete with an order to vacate a building whose owner claims has been wrongly demarcated for demolition by KPLC squad.
We ask KPLC to review, since this is not okay if it is true.
KPLC policy on transmission Line 220KV wayleave clearance both sides is 20 metres; for 132 KV transmission line, the wayleave is 15 metres.
However, KPLC have decided to erroneously mark 33 metres on a 132 KV, essentially marking our buildings for demolitions in Chokaa, Njiru Saika.
This is malicious.
