Final scores of residents of Dey Krahom slum were cleared by bulldozers from the slum this morning. There were negotiations on compensation between the remaining resident the 7NG company who has purchased the land, but the deal have never been made so far. Without prior notice, this morning the remaining families were evicted by force.
Actually at about 9AM, I saw scores of police blocking the road to Dey Krahom while I was on my moving on my bike, but I did not have time to check it out as I had an errand to do. As 7NG has showed intention to clear the area recently, I guessed that it probably their final day have come. Sadly it is true.
