Residents sign petition

Mere Naleba
Monday, August 25, 2014

SOME residents living at Komave settlement in Nabua have signed a petition in an attempt to stop a resident from rebuilding his house in the area.

A team from this newspaper that visited the area yesterday was met by a group of people who raised their concerns after a fire razed four houses, leaving five families homeless, 16 individuals deeply affected and six people with burns.

Komave settlement committee member Emi Naiviri is among the group of 30 residents who have signed a petition asking the Department of Land not to allow Mohammed Rafiq to continue staying in the informal settlement.

She said Mr Rafiq had two houses in the area which he rented out and had five tenants staying in the two houses as well as another property in Makoi in which his parents lived in. Mr Rafiq said he had one house in the area which was destroyed by fire and the second house belonged to his mother.
