Friday, November 23, 2018-The owner of the condemned 7 storey building in Nairobi’s Kayole estate has been arrested and the shoddy building which was almost complete is set to be demolished.
Photos of the shoddy 7 storey building trended online, forcing Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko to swing into action.
Sonko shared photos of the owner of the building in police custody on his facebook page and said, “As promised my administration cannot sit back and watch innocent Kenyans trapped in collapsed buildings because of one or two individuals who have been compromised.
This morning a Government Multi-agency team led by Nairobi City County Government officials arrested the owner of a condemned seven-storey building in Kayole for building without necessary approvals and ignoring a demolition notice.
All condemned buildings must all be brought down and necessary legal action taken in accordance to the law.”
Here are the photos.
