PRESS STATEMENT: STONEY ATHI RIVER FLOOD WALL

It has come to our attention that at 5.30pm on Thursday May 31st, 2018 officials of the Water Resources Authority (WRA) visited Greenpark Estate, a development of Superior Homes Kenya PLC (SHK) and alleged that 8 houses were constructed on a riparian reserve.

 

SHK has been in continued communication with WRA following the unprecedented floods on March 15th, 2018 that damaged a section of a perimeter wall at Greenpark Estate.

 

SHK submitted engineering designs for a flood-mitigating wall that would serve as a dyke in the event of any future abnormal rise of water on the seasonal Stoney Athi River (Mto wa Mawe).

 

SHK developed this section of the 163-acre estate in 2008 following approval and permits by relevant local and national authorities who mapped out the riparian reserve and deemed the perimeter wall to be beyond it. This position was reaffirmed by the National Environment Management Authority following the March incident.

 

Superior Homes is a law abiding corporate citizen and would like to reassure homeowners in Greenpark and all stakeholders that it will follow all legal channels to ensure this matter is resolved in the quickest time possible.

 

Superior Homes vision and mission is to build sustainable homes where dreams come true
