Over Demolition… Tower Hill Residents ‘Tawa’

Residents of Tower Hill in the heart of the city have expressed grave concern over an alleged move by the court to have their houses demolished after having spent up to thirty years as residents of that community.

Past Tuesday, a cross section of the aggrieved Tower Hill residents stormed the AYV Media Empire with placards to express their dismay and later the Vice President Office where the head of that community, James B. Kanu explained their plights to an official at the VP office who assured them of the Vice President’s intervention.

According James Kanu, he occupied and developed the said land wit documents to show, some thirty years ago but that a potion of the land was allocated to a Church. He went on to disclose that for the past ten years the said portion had laid waste and that the Pastor of the Church now claims ownership of the entire piece of land. He furthered that the matter had gone up to the High Court and that the court had ruled in favor of them, residents.

“We were surprise to see bailiffs from the court asking us to vacate the land on the orders of the Court,” James Kanu told the Exclusive.

It is not yet known what the outcome of their agitations to the Vice President was but according to them, they also intended to storm both the State House and the Legal Aid Board offices at Guma Building to express their grievances.
