The Nairobi County government on Thursday took down illegal structures in Nairobi’s Lavington area.

The morning operation saw traders engage the police in running battles as they refused to leave their places of work.

Traders have been evicted in Ngara, Mutindwa market, Allsops as county Governor Mike Sonko tries to transform the capital.

He has also maintained that some of the structures sit on road reserves.

But Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja faulted the county boss for the “inhumane” demolitions that he said have left “many residents hopeless and with nowhere to go after their business premises were destroyed.”

“I know that we are suffering when the structures are demolished. I am appealing to the governor to please, before we demolish the structures, let’s get a good place for them to operate because they are just struggling to earn a living,” Sakaja said.
