Oshwal Centre demolitions currently underway

The demolition of Oshwal Center in Westlands is underway.

This comes just a day after the Ukay Mall also located in Westlands was demolished, in a move aimed at reclaiming riparian land.

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko had made it clear that the multi-billion shillings Oshwal Center would be demolished, warning that over 4000 building in the county had been marked for demolition.

According to NEMA, the buildings had been given a three-month notice, which expired last Sunday.

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday vowed to support the ongoing quest to reclaim riparian land.

He further directed that state officials who cleared the riparian lands for sale be arrested and prosecuted.
