City Hall Orders Demolition of Kayole Building After Uproar

City hall has ordered for the demolition of a faulty building in Kayole that had caused panic among Nairobi residents online.

Through an enforcement on November 9, the county government also demanded its developer to submit a structural integrity report within a seven-day period which has since elapsed.

"You are hereby required to stop further construction immediately and submit architectural and structure plant," read the report according to The Star.

The seven-story building had, in the recent past, caused a panic online owing to how narrow it has been built with an entire faulty outlook.

One Philip Ogola, in a tweet to Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, demanded that the building be demolished since it was highly likely to cause deaths./

This building spotted along spine road kayole at the Beecentre Roundabout is a disaster in waiting. Please do something before its too late,” expressed @ConstAfrica.

The building is located at Bee Centre, Harry’s Tavern along Kayole Spine Road.

This comes shortly after the state paused its quest of mass demolitions of buildings around the city reportedly owing to lack of funds.

The demolition had targeted faulty buildings and those erected on riparian lands.

High-end shopping malls such as the South End Mall along Langata Road, Taj Mall in Embakasi and several others in Westlands were brought down.
