Aerial view of the demolition of Ukay Centre in Westlands by NEMA

Share this:

An excavator descended on Ukay Centre in Westlands as the national environment watchdog, NEMA, steps up reclamation of occupied wetlands in the capital Nairobi. The mall, estimated to have cost Sh900 million, comes down a day after its owners failed to secure an injunction against its demolition from the High Court. Kental Enterprises Limited sued the Nairobi County government, the National Environment Management Authority (Nema), the Water Resource and Management Authority, the National Youth Service and the attorney-general. According to Managing Director Bimal Shah, Ukay Centre adhered to all laws relating to riparian reserves and the recommended distance from rivers.
