Last month the government demolished all the settlements built on land that belonged to Kenya airports authority but they never resettled the victims leaving them with no place to call their home.
Yes they demolished the settlements but why not have that human heart and feel that the victims (of which I am one) were Kenyans and show them somewhere else to settle in this big land of Kenya?
The most annoying thing is that many victims were children and youths like me who were born, raised, married while still there and they never knew any other home except there so where did they expect us to go?
But the big question still remains there to be asked again and again;”where was the government or the Kenya airports authority people for all those years since the settlements began?”Like our slum (mitumba) which was near Wilson airport in Nairobi had been there since the Moi era and that was way back to 1990.
The government should consider coming up with another way of vacating people who have settled in these lands i.e. show them an alternative place to settle since they settled without knowing and it was that very long time ago, like in our slum’s case
The lesson learnt by many victims is that “never settle on land that does not belong to you” and that if you are living poorly in Kenya you have no right.
Pole Kwa wenye wote waliobomolewa tujikaze twendelee Na maisha because we still have hands given by the almighty one. GOD BLESS YOU PEOPLE.
