Grand Manor Hotel Demolished after Owner Pays 2 Billion for Approvals

This morning has seen the nearly completed Grand Manor Hotel demolished due to security reasons.

The hotel owned by tycoon Praful Kumar was descended upon by Sany at 3 am in the morning.

The High court on Tuesday allowed the multi-million shilling hotel to be brought down because it poses a security risk to the adjacent United Nations offices.

The five-star facilities, according to Kumar, was 75 percent complete and he had already paid 2.7 billion shillings for its approvals by the Nairobi County government.

The Grand Manor hotel is the most recent victim in a list of multibillion-shilling structures demolished by City Hall since July 2018 in an effort by the Government to reclaim riparian land.

Buildings brought down for being on riparian land include Airgate Mall, a Shell Petrol Station and Java hotel in Kileleshwa and a shopping complex next to T-Mall along Lang’ata Road in Nairobi.
