Wednesday May 6, 2020 – Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jnr tore President Uhuru Kenyatta into pieces yesterday over the move by his Government to demolish homes in Kariobangi North, Nairobi, leaving thousands homeless.
According to Kilonzo, Uhuru and his mandarins had committed an international crime and violated human rights with the evictions, and called on the Senate to quickly take action to help the affected families.
Comparing the evictions in Kairobangi to the handling of landslides in Elgeyo-Marakwet, Mutula asserted that recent events had made it clear that the Government did not value Kenyans.
“What is happening in Nairobi, particularly the evictions, is a violation of human rights.”
“What is happening in Nairobi, in the middle of a pandemic, is actually an international crime.”
“It’s an international crime because those people are staying out in the cold, they are mixing with people whom they don’t know if they are infected.”
“Something is wrong with this government.”
“God needs to find something about this government, there’s something wrong about how this government treats human beings.”
“It’s as if this government was elected by cows and goats,” he stated.
Residents who were evicted in Kariobangi were given 24 hours to vacate the area, with the Government claiming the land they lived on belongs to the Dandora Estate Waste Sewerage Treatment Plant in Ruai.
