Kenyans Troll Kiambu Governor Waititu With Baba Yao Challenge

  • Governors Hassan Joho, Oparanya dance with Raila Odinga Citizen Digital
  • Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu on Sunday declared that he did not support the ongoing demolitions of structures built on riparian land in Nairobi.

    Waititu suggested that the government should place the burden of diverting the river on the investor instead of demolishing the entire property.

    Mambo ingine mimi naona pale, kama iyo watu wanasupport ubomoaji, mimi hapana support. Mambo iangaliwe, kama nyumba yako imekaribiana na mto, wewe uambiwe ni gharama yako kuhakikisha hiyo mto imesonga kidogo

    Which loosely translates to: (Something I am seeing with people supporting demolitions that I don't support. This should be looked into and if your house is next to the river you should be told to cater for the cost of diverting the river to ensure it moves a bit),” Waititu stated.
