09/07/2015 – Amnesty International wishes to urgently draw your attention to the risk of imminent forced evictions in Nairobi, Kenya, which risks taking place under the European Union (EU) funded ‘Missing Link 15 B’ road construction project. Over 1000 families residing in the Deep Sea settlement in Westlands, Nairobi, Kenya, are at risk of human rights violations in the absence of adequate human rights safeguards, and ahead of the evictions that would start from 8 July 2015 onward, as announced by the Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA).
