I will not remove Taj Mall even unto my death – Owner now dares

Come and face me

Speaking to journalists after receiving a 14-day notice ordering him to pull down the structure, Mr Gorasia stated that even unto death he will never do such a thing.

"They have told me to remove it by 30 August but I am challenging him that I will not remove it. If he wants to remove it he can come and remove it himself. And if he wants to ask for the cost he can go to the court and I will defend myself.

"I am saying it openly that I will not remove these structures even unto my death," he insisted.

An emotional Gorasia went ahead to dare President Uhuru Kenyatta, Deputy President William Ruto and Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko to face him if they were behind the orders to demolish newly rebranded Taj mall now referred to as Airgate mall.

"If he is the President or the Deputy President or the Governor let them face me and say Ramesh I have come to remove it," he said.

The Taj mall owner insisted that he had documents from different Government agencies indicating that the building was built on private property.

He claimed that the pressure to have the building brought down was politically instigated.
