The demolition of a section of Visa Oshwal center built on riparian land has began with bulldozers roaring into action.

This comes a few minutes after Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko released a statement confirming that a section of the center will be spared in the ongoing demolitions as it does not sit on riparian land.

Sections spared include the temple, monuments and cultural centre.

The statement read in part that "Regarding the Oshwal Centre and Temple, we are ready to preserve the temple, monuments and cultural centre because they are far from the river, but the rest of the structures, like the hall, that are within the stipulated riparian distance, must be removed. We urge leaders not to use the demolitions to advance political interests."
