No Comments
Last week, Police Officers displaced several squatters in the New Kingston area. Now residents of the area as well as the Civil Society Forum are speaking out. According to the residents, they received no notice to re-locate and many of them have nowhere to go.

According to one individual, she is waiting on the authorities to help her build a new home in the very location from which she was removed. Other residents, however, said if they were given the opportunity they would not hesitate to move.

The residents say they called the Police last week to inform them that someone living on the gully had died, according to them, the Police came with Bulldozers to knock down their homes.

The Civil Society says it is currently speaking with agencies to identify spaces to house the displaced.
