The National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) on Monday morning demolished a Shell petrol station and Java House outlet in the upmarket Kileleshwa estate in Nairobi.

According to NEMA officials, the establishments were brought down for encroaching on riparian land and being on a road reserve.

The dawn demolition caught many unawares and the employees of the two establishments could only watch helplessly. There was also heavy police presence at the site.

NEMA officials at the ground told Citizen Digital that the owners had been given a three-month eviction notice.

The environment authority has in the recent past been carrying out demolition of buildings set up on road reserves as well as those blocking river flow.

In Kibera slums, Nairobi, thousands of families were left homeless after the government demolished their homes to pave way for the construction of a new road.

The road to be constructed is set to connect Ngong Road to Langata Road via Kibra.
