On the evening of Wednesday, October 6, claims that Weston Hotel along the busy Lang'ata Road, which is linked to Deputy President William Ruto, was set for demolition, went viral online.
It all started with a tweet from a Twitter account associated with Kapseret MP, Oscar Sudi, who claimed plans to begin the demolition of the hotel on the night of Wednesday were already in high gear.
To prove his claims, the MP accompanied his tweets with photos of a bulldozer bundled onto a carrier car suggesting that the demolition was primed to start in a short while.
"The Deep State are indeed cornered. They have today decided to express their fury by demolishing Weston Hotel," read Sudi's statement in part.
However a police officer who spoke to one 9f the local media station from the said Jurisdiction rubbished the claims claiming he had not heard of the demolitions.
Some of Deputy president William Ruto allies claimed that a huge entourage of cops had been spotted in the area.
However, news reporters who rushed to the scene were left shocked after the found the allegations to be hoax.
The viral claims led to a roller-coaster of reactions across the internet.
A huge number of kenyans claimed that demolition of the said hotel would work as a direct campaign for the deputy president William Ruto.
However, in July 2021, Dp Ruto filed an application in court seeking to halt the demolition of his hotel.
Weston, which sits on a 0.773 hectares piece of land opposite Wilson Airport, accused KCAA of defying orders from NLC to conclude negotiations on the land after which Ruto would compensate the airports agency.
