Truth Behind Demolition Of William Ruto's Weston Hotel.

On Wednesday, October 6, evening, claims that Weston Hotel along the busy Lang'ata Road, which is linked to Deputy President William Ruto, was set for demolition.

It started on Twitter account associated with Kapseret MP, Oscar Sudi. The MP claimed that plans to begin the demolition of Weston hotel on Wednesday night were already in high gear.

The MP accompanied his tweets with photos of a bulldozer bundled onto a career suggesting that the demolition was primed to start in a short while. This was to give satisfying proof.

"The Deep State are indeed cornered. They have today decided to express their fury by demolishing Weston Hotel," Oscar Sudi wrote.

A police officer from Lang'ata Police Station, under whose jurisdiction the hotel stands, noted that he was not aware of the demolition plans.

It is expected that regarding the demolition of an establishment as prominent as the hotel, police officers would be briefed to provide security during the exercise.

A correspondent based in Lang'ata and who had showed up to cover the alleged demolition exercise, also revealed that the claims, which made rounds on social media, were not true.

Kenyans quickly revealed that the bulldozer in question was parked along Lang'ata Road, just a few meters from Weston Hotel. This happened after the tweet from the lawmaker.

"Some intelligence news brains and calculations, demolishing Weston Hotel is direct campaigns to Ruto and Hustler Nation," stated Abdiaziz Abdullahi.

Deputy president William Ruto lodged a fresh legal application seeking to halt the demolition of the hotel which was found to have been irregularly built on public land in July 2021.

Lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi, who represented Weston, needed the case to be pushed to next year to allow his team to file for an appeal.

Weston hotel is said to be sitting on a 0.773 hectares piece of land which is opposite Wilson Airport. KCAA is therefore being accused of defying orders from NLC to conclude negotiations on the land after which DP William Ruto would compensate the airport's agency.
