Sonko makes good his threats, demolishes city tycoon’s hotel parking – PHOTOS

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has gone back to his word just hours after he had announced that the government had stopped all demolitions countrywide and demolished a tycoon’s hotel parking lot and toilets.

On Thursday the Government announced the suspension of the demolitions countrywide, but Sonko in a viral video threatened the owner of Marble Arch Hotel Mike Maina, who he alleges used fake title deeds to get eviction notices from the courts to evict and demolish houses in Kayole estate.

On Thursday evening, county bulldozers ploughed into the toilets along with a pavement near the hotel, which according to Sonko, were built on land belonging to county’s, Fire Station.

The demolition came just hours after an audio of a telephone recording of a furious Governor Sonko hurling abuses at the tycoon went viral on social media.

In the expletives-laden tirade the governor threatens to take down the businessman’s public toilet and the Marble Hotel.
