Tenants have been given a two weeksâ€™ notice to vacate the premises of the building.
â€œNotice is hereby given to the owner(s)/ developers(s) of the illegal development, namely AIRGATE MALL, formerly Taj Mall, situated at the North Airport Raod at the junction of Outering Road, which has encroached on the road reserve and wayleave hindering the continuance of construction of the Outering Road,â€ read part of the notice.Â
However, the owner of the building located in Embakasi, Nairobi, has dared the Government to bring down the structure.
â€œIf you want to demolish this building do it, I donâ€™t care, I am tired of hearing about its demolition now for over five years,â€ said an angryÂ Rameshchandra Govind Gorasia during a press briefing on Wednesday 16 August.
â€œI have suffered enough since rumors of demolitions losing Sh2 to 3 billion in rentals, it is enough. Please bring it down even now. I donâ€™t care,â€ he added.
