Stop Forced Evictions During Pandemic

, , ,

Since March, we have witnessed forced eviction and demolitions in Nairobi.

These evictions have left thousands homeless, with no alternative resettlement and compensation accorded to the victims.

This has led to the exposure of these families to the danger of contracting Covid-19 since they can no longer access shelter, sanitation services and protection from the weather elements.
