Kuwait: The Director-General of Kuwait Municipality, Eng. Ahmed Al-Manfouhi Daber cut off “wasta and nepotism”, in his administrative circular, which assigned the departments to remove violations and emergency teams in the branches of the governorates, to conduct field tours to detect building violations in all areas of the governorates.
Al-Manfouhi set a “distribution” for the inspectors limiting their work tasks to this specific assignment within the detection areas that do not belong to their governorates, meaning that the inspector of the Hawalli Governorate goes to inspect the violating properties in Al-Ahmadi, and so on, provided that there is also a subsequent control over the reports he submitted.
An official source in the municipality revealed that the most prominent of what was stated in the lengthy meeting held yesterday between the managers of the emergency teams and the heads of the removal departments with the legal department, as 5 types of violations were identified that those charged with monitoring them, namely the “fourth floor”, and “adhesion” Al-Kamel Real Estate”, “bachelor’s housing”, “exploitation of the increase in the percentage of construction in the investment (suspended)” and “Badel stadiums”.
He indicated that a period of time had been set for all concerned teams and departments to submit their reports, which is within only 3 weeks, provided that the campaign begins this morning, stressing that “Al-Manfouhi stressed, during his meeting with some officials in charge, the need to prevent any laxity in the process of monitoring violations, and to provide him with the file of any inspector. He neglects or neglects the application of the law, in preparation for taking administrative and legal measures against him.”
