SONKO arrests 7 Chinese workers as he stops the construction of a multi-billion building in Westlands - See what they were doing

Thursday August 16, 2018 - Nairobi Governor, Mike Mbuvi Sonko, has arrested seven Chinese contractors and charged them with erecting a building in Westlands, Nairobi, without approval. 

The 7 were arrested alongside two of their Kenyan counterparts over the illegal construction of Avic International Building that was apparently to host the JW Marriot, a chain of hotels with headquarters in the U.S.

“We wish to inform the general public especially people residing around Parklands, Westlands and Riverside that we have this morning stopped the construction of the Avic International building along the Waiyaki Way/ Chiromo road and arrested all the Chinese and Kenyan contractors on site for defying the county planning laws by encroaching on the famous Chiromo close public access,” Sonko said.

The Governor further claimed that the name of the Site Manager was missing from the charge sheet as he went on to accuse owners of the building of refusing to surrender the public property.
