The familiar green Sany demolition tractor descended on the condemned six-storey building under construction in Kayole, Nairobi County on Friday.

The owner of the building, which had been earmarked for demolition, Caroline Wanjiru, was arrested by a multi-agency team led by City Hall officials for putting up the building without approvals.

The six-storey building had raised uproar with locals claiming it was unsafe.

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has issued stern warning to people putting up buildings without genuine approvals.

The building was still under construction.

“This morning a government multi-agency team led by Nairobi City County Government officials arrested the owner of a condemned seven-storey building in Kayole for building without necessary approvals and ignoring a demolition notice," said Governor Sonko.
