The demolition of unsafe buildings in Huruma is yet to kick off because the multi-agency committee set up to oversee the exercise has not met.
National Buildings Inspectorate secretary and Chief Government quantity surveyor Moses Nyakiongora on Wednesday said he is on leave and the task force could not meet yesterday (Tuesday) as scheduled, without him.
The committee was to convene and review reports on whether the owners of the buildings have complied with notices issued after assessment of their properties.
“I am still on leave and they [multi-agency committee] can’t meet without me but we shall compile the reports of what has happened. We shall begin to demolish houses that have not been attended to, by their owners,” Nyakiongora told the Star on phone.
But he said the demolitions will be carried out before the end of this month.
