Renowned Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi has addressed reports of an alleged plan to demolish DP Ruto’s Weston Hotel in Nairobi, over claims that it has encroached public land. In a statement on Friday, Ahmednasir claimed that the government had sent bulldozers to demolish the facility.
However, Ahmednasir noted that the operation was called off in what appears to be a change of mind by the people giving the orders.
According to the Senior Counsel, orders to demolish the hotel were allegedly issued by the government on Wednesday before the change of mind.
“As counsel on record for Weston Hotel, I can officially confirm that the government of the Republic of Kenya on Wednesday sent tractors and goons to demolish the hotel. The operation was called off after the tractors reached the hotel and the powers that be changed its mind,” Ahmednassir stated.
For the better part of the week, Weston Hotel had been trending on social media, with netizens inquiring on the status of the facility following demolition reports.
