Illegal structures along Fedha Road, Embakasi East constituency have been brought down by the Nairobi county in conjunction with the police.
The kiosks which are apparently sit on the road reserve are owned by criminal gangs who charged between Sh5,000 and Sh.10,000.
The gangs which are common in the area depended on the kiosks to hide their real criminal activities including land grabbing, rape, murder and robbery.
The Embakasi OCPD provided security while county government operations were coordinated by Sub-County Administrator Selina Ogalo.
Governor Mike Sonko has insisted that residents must respect road reserves as he seeks to expand major roads.
The county government, Sonko says, will cooperate with other road agencies involved to improve the condition of our roads.
Outering and Ngong Roads are near completion as the county boss seeks to decongest the city in partnership with the National Government. This he notes will help fast track the Nairobi Mass Rapid Transport System.
Similarly, the county government has also taken down kiosks in Allsops, along Thika Road and in March structures in Embakasi West along Ngong River that were causing flooding.
