In 2019, Edermann Properties was stopped from going on with the construction of its Greatwall Phase 3 estate.
However, the Chinese-owned firm has continued with impunity to build the estate in a largely congested area where factories abound.
The Chinaman Zeyun Yang, the MD of Erdemann Property Limited, has sunk billions into his projects ostensibly in line with the government’s Big Four Agenda on affordable housing.
Residents have been complaining of breathing in deadly fumes from the nearby factories. However, the earlier developments were a bit far from this menace, only sewage and toxic water flow was the issue. But the new phase 3 will put the residents’ lives in danger.
Residents complain that the house will be dangerous because they will be right next to several industries emitting dangerous chemicals.
Documents in the Environment Tribunal and Land Court, seen by cnyakundi.com, had barred the company from constructing over six hundred housing units holding the area is an industrial complex.
The firm had been at loggerheads with London Distillers Kenya Limited (LDK)
As Machakos Governor cracks the whip on Endmor Steel Millers Limited over air pollution in Syokimau, by suspending their busines licence, he should also sort out the issues between the LDK and Erdermann Properties Ltd.
What the residents say about the air pollution
Amazingly, China's Great Wall isnt visible from space but China's pollution is visible from space.

The London distillers company emphasizes that the greatwall apartments phase 3 project is not compatible with LDK operations and other industries within the project zone. If allowed, it will be a major source of conflict in future."#komeshachinku
