The familiar green Sany demolition tractor descended on the condemned six-storey building under construction in Kayole, Nairobi County on Friday.

The owner of the building which had been earmarked for demolition, Caroline Wanjiru, was arrested by a team of Government multi-agency, led by City Hall officials, for constructing a building without approvals.

The six storey building had raised uproar over claims it was unsafe.

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has issued stern warning to owners putting up buildings without genuine approvals.

The building was still under construction.

“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,” said Governor Sonko.

” All condemned buildings must all be brought down and necessary legal action taken in accordance to the law,” he added.

The owner of the building had been issued with a notice to demolish on November 9 and also ordered to submit its structural integrity report within seven days.
