Despite an order by National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) on 6/09/2021 to stop Diamond Trust Bank (DTB) from constructing its perimeter wall along a riparian area in Limuru Road, Nairobi- DTB is on course in full throttle. Begging the questions as to whose powerful upper hand do they have in NEMA that’s protect them from jaws of justice after defying laws of the land.

According to observations done by NEMA on the site of construction which is considered Riparian;

1. There’s no evidence of environmental impact assessment license for the wall

2. There’s no evidence of riparian pegging from WRA

3. The workers at the site, twenty three in number had no Personal Protective Gears (PPEs).

DTB Ltd was ordered with immediate effect on 6/09/2021 to stop construction at the site and report the following day to NEMA office with necessary compliance documents for review and further instructions and only continue when they obtain the environmental impact assessment license.

It turns out, according to our source that the construction at the site is ongoing despite jeopardizing ecosystem.
