Court stops Water Resources Authority from demolishing Greenpark Estate residential units

The High Court in Machakos has stopped the Water Resources Authority from demolishing residential units at the Greenpark Estate in Machakos County. In May, the authority issued residents of the estate with a 21 day notice to vacate their homes, which border Stoni River Athi, on grounds that they were on riparian land. This came after River Athi broke its banks and flooded homes in the estate. The estate’s developer, Superior Homes, went to court, arguing that the same authority had cleared the project in 2013, saying that it fell outside the riparian land. Justice George Odunga will give further direction on the matter on the 3rd of July.
