Buruburu residents up in arms over the demolition of Tom Mboya Hall


Residents of Buruburu have criticized the demolition of the Tom Mboya Hall located along Jogoo Road.

Reports indicate that a private developer brought down the hall named after one of Kenya’s veteran politicians.

At the beginning of this month, small business people were left counting losses. This was after a group of youth in the company of a security agency stormed the building and threw them out.

Traders operating at the social hall protested saying they hadn’t received a notice to vacate the building.

“Today’s incident is rather unfortunate since we didn’t receive any notice asking us to vacate the premises. We have lost most of our goods due to the commotion. They should have given dialogue a chance,” noted one trader.

According to some traders, KANU members send the goons to demolish the building. However, they have insisted that they are out to know the real owners of the social hall.

They also noted that if KANU owns the building, they should produce a title deed for verification.

Buruburu phase 5 residents came out to condemn the demolitions stating they didn’t receive a notification.

The residents have demanded an explanation from the government on why it resorted to destroying the building.

They added that bringing down a historical building made the place lose its value.
