BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,13TH DEC 2018-An Asian investor in Nairobi is counting huge losses after City county excavator descended on his multi-billion-shilling Hotel Grand Manor in Nairobi’s Gigiri area bringing it down.
The hotel is owned by businessman Praful Kumar and is said to have been constructed on riparian land .
This is after a Nairobi court issued orders allowing the Nairobi County Government to bring down the property.
The court on Tuesday ruled that Mr Kumar’s hotel owned Kumar, which was yet to open its doors, is a security threat to the adjacent United Nations offices.
The property is situated opposite the US Embassy on one side, and the UN head offices on the other side.
