Sonko: Only sections of Oshwal Centre will be demolished -VIDEO

Even as bulldozers moved in to start the demolition of the Oshwal Centre in Nairobi, Governor Mike Sonko has said that only sections of the building will be demolished.

In a statement, the governor said that the temple, monuments and cultural centre would remain intact because the three sections of the centre do not sit on riparian land.

“We are ready to preserve the temple, monuments and cultural centre because they are far from the river, but the rest of the structures, like the hall, that are within the stipulated riparian distance, must be removed,” Sonko said.

The governor also urged leaders not to use the ongoing demolition exercise to advance political interests.

“The President and I are interested in leaving a legacy by righting the wrongs that were committed in the past. We owe it to future generations,” he said.
