Appeal for building materials


The Nubian Community in Kibos, Kisumu have sent out an appeal to help them rebuild once more after weeks of staying in the cold following the demolition of their houses.

Kisumu Muslim Association Chairman Sheikh Musa said that they are ready to construct in the disputed land after Environment and Land Court gave orders barring Kenya Railways from evicting them.

Musa said they require building materials to put up temporary structures to cushion families from cold occasioned by the ongoing rains.

He called upon well wishers to come on board and give a lending hand to the over 3,500 families affected by the demolitions.

Last week, Justice Antony Ombwayo directed Kenya Railways Philip Mainga not to go ahead and implement any further evictions until the matter is heard and determined.

Sheikh Musa spoke when a Non Governmental Organization, Grassroots Trust donated building materials including iron sheets and timber for the start of construction of houses.

Grassroots Trust Director Lawrence Apiyo rallied other well wishers to come to the aid of the affected families to put shelter on their heads.

Apiyo also challenged the local legislators to marshal resources to be able to remove the families from the camp and have decent houses for them.
