Iconic Oshwal Centre in Westlands is among the buildings earmarked for demolition in the ongoing reclamation of riparian land in Nairobi.
According to reports, the owners of Oshwal Centre held a meeting today and are currently moving their property out of the building, which might be the next in line to be demolished after Nakumatt Ukay which was flattened this morning.
This will be the fourth major building to go down in Nairobi after Java Kileleshwa, South End Mall along Ngong Road and Ukay Mall in Westlands.
National Environment Management Authority (Nema) says it is targeting over 800 buildings in the operatin in the country’s capital.
President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday called for the prosecution of Government officials behind approval for such buildings.
Already the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji has directed CID boss George Kinoti to open a probe on the approvals and report within 21 days.
