Gov stresses importance of Municipali­ty campaign


KUWAIT CITY, June 26, (KUNA): Capital Governor Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled stressed the importance of the Kuwait Municipali­ty campaign to remove building violations, which was adopted by the governorat­e in support of joint efforts to upgrade the capital’s areas and its visions towards developmen­t and modernizat­ion.

Sheikh Al-Khaled said in a press statement on the sidelines of a field visit to a number of areas of the capital on Friday, that there is an increase in the number of building removals to 165 cases out of 206 warnings of building violations for investment properties in Sharq, Al-Mirqab, Qibla and Bneid AlGar, indicating that the number of demolition­s in Bneid Al-Gar area alone has reached 88, East 65, and Qibla 16, in addition to 8 cases of removal in the Al-Mirqab area.

On the other hand, the governor of the capital stressed the need to move quickly in building labor cities that have been expected for years, considerin­g that it is an important demand for all Kuwaitis. He said that the phenomenon of the spread of bachelors in the areas of private and model housing “has become a concern for all of us because of its negative repercussi­ons affecting our society, and it has become an epidemic that threatens the Kuwaiti national identity and a source that has affected various aspects of living life on all health, security and social levels, especially after “the noticeable increase in employment in model and private areas.

He noted the eviction of more than 8,000 single expatriate­s who were living in houses in violation of all regulation­s and laws, especially those related to health requiremen­ts, and the lack of conformity of their addresses with the residentia­l addresses recorded in the civil ID, in addition to their overcrowdi­ng in places that lack security and safety conditions.

In a related context, the governor praised the steps taken by the Director General of Kuwait Municipali­ty, Eng. Ahmed AlManfouhi, to instruct all teams in all governorat­es to eliminate building violations, praising at the same time the efforts of the Capital Governorat­e Municipali­ty’s emergency team headed by Zaid Al-Enezi and the team members’ continuous and remarkable giving.
