Sonko leaves drug addicts high and dry after shutting down popular rehab centre

Nairobi County Governor Mike Sonko has defended the move to close down Eden House Rehabilitation Center and repossess the land.

The governor explained that the facility has been sitting on a grabbed piece of land within City Park.

Mr Sonko said the proprietors of the rehab centre were issued with fake allotment letters by a land grabbing cartel of senior City Hall officials.

On Friday, county officials from the Environment Department raided Eden House Rehabilitation Center and closed it down.

Mr Sonko offered the proprietors sh300, 000 to pay rent at an alternative site.

The facility’s  executive director Boniface Njoroge said the closure will affect about 15 drug addicts  housed at the facility.

“I am offering sh300, 000 to the directors of Eden Rehab to look for an alternative place to hire so as to continue with their good work they are doing for the society,” Mr Sonko said.
