Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu on Sunday declared that he did
not support the ongoing demolitions of structures built on riparian land
in Nairobi.

Waititu suggested that the government should place the burden of
diverting the river on the investor instead of demolishing the entire
Mambo ingine mimi naona pale, kama iyo watu wanasupport ubomoaji,
mimi hapana support. Mambo iangaliwe, kama nyumba yako imekaribiana
na mto, wewe uambiwe ni gharama yako kuhakikisha hiyo mto imesonga
Which loosely translates to: (Something I am seeing with people
supporting demolitions that I don't support. This should be looked into
and if your house is next to the river you should be told to cater for the
cost of diverting the river to ensure it moves a bit),” Waititu stated.
