Forced Evictions in Kariobangi

Around 6 a.m. on May 4, demolition crews hired by the Nairobi Water and Sewer Company began demolition of informal housing in Kariobangi displacing more than 2,000 families in the process. Fifteen Hands of Love families have been affected.

The demolition not only destroys the lives of the affected people, but it also undermines the work that Hands of Love and other organisations have been doing in the fight against coronavirus.

You have to wonder who in our unfit-for-purpose government thought it was a good idea to add  this humanmade crisis to that of COVID-19.

We are doing our best to assist the affected Hands of Love families, including providing them with temporary shelter.
