Families in Ongata Rongai spent Thursday night within the cold after their houses were demolished to pave way for the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR).
Residents in Nkoroi area told Nairobi News in which their houses are being demolished despite no compensations made by the government.
They said the demolition arrived at the site on Thursday evening along with commenced flattening buildings.
Mr Michael Wacira said in which he was shocked to see the bulldozers within the estate without the National Lands Commission informing them of plans to compensate them.
“We have kept asking for compensation nevertheless no one has ever since last year bothered to tell pay us. This specific can be very unfair for us,” he said.
Another affected resident, Mary Kianga, said in which she had nowhere else to go along with was waiting for the compensation to afford buying land elsewhere.
She blamed those behind the demolition for using police officers to intimidate them.
“The officers are here to intimidate us yet the idea can be clear in which the government has not given us our money like they did to the rest,” said Ms Kianga, adding in which they were not informed of any plans of demolishing any houses.
