Wednesday October 17, 2018-Deputy President William has been forced to come clean on his multi-million Weston Hotel in Lang’ata, Nairobi.
Speaking through his lawyer, Ahmednassir Abdullahi, Ruto noted that he acquired the land legally and begged President Uhuru Kenyatta and Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko not bring down his hotel on pretext that it stands on public land.
This is after the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) wrote to the National Land Commission (NLC) alleging Weston Hotel stands on its land which was irregularly acquired by the DP.
Ahmednassir, who had appeared before National Lands Commission in an effort to defend the DP’s acquisition of the plot on Lang’ata Road, also questioned the commission’s jurisdiction to determine the ownership of the land whose directors are Ruto, Rachel Chebet Kimeto and Charlene Chelagat Ruto.
Besides, Ruto’s lawyer denied his client had gotten the land irregularly, saying no one had come forward to claim the property since it was acquired.
“Our client is not aware of any allegations of fraud or misrepresentation against him in procuring the transfer and registration of the property.”
“In any event, if such an allegation were made, it would be the duty of the person making such claims to prove it," Ahmednassir said.
