General Badi speaks on the lunar park demolitions, lashes out at business owners

On 16th September Nairobi Metropolitan Service (NMS) Director-General Mohammed Badi held a press conference at Lunar park, Nairobi to explain the ongoing demolitions. However, as he was explaining, he lost his cool and lashed out at business owners.

General Badi visited the park on Wednesday to adress the demolition issues. The demolitions commenced on Tuesday and Wednesday night causing an uproar from business owners who operate in the park.

Some of the angry business owners asked him questions which angered him. The NMS boss dared the business owners to go to court if they are aggrieved.

“If you have a difference, there is a proper procedure of following. If you have a lease, you can get your lawyers, go to court and sue Kenya Re (Kenya Reinsurance Corporation),” Badi said.

“Those are the procedures of the government. So why do you want to create violence? Did you fight when coming for this lease? That will be settled in court,” he added.

Reason for demolitions

General Badi explained that the Government intends to put up one of the biggest bus termini in the city. The bus terminus will cater for PSV vehicles which use Mombasa Road and Ngong’ road.

The bus terminus Green Park Terminus. It will adopt a design similar to that of Greyhound Terminus in New York.

Earlier reports alleged that the reason for demolition was to pave way for the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport-Westlands expressway which is under construction.

A business owner asked General Badi why he had double standards. General Badi explained that the land belongs to the government and there are no double standards.

“The land belongs to the government, so when you say double standards I do not know what you mean,” an agitated General Badi said.

Badi also said that businesses such as restaurants would remain in the park. He noted that restaurants are essential services which would come in handy when the terminus is complete.
