Photos of Sh600 Million Controversial Hotel DP Ruto Has Built Next to the Beach
DP Ruto's new multi-million investment almost done
The hotel constructed near the Indian Ocean in Mombasa is near completion after the National Environmental Authority cleared it.
Complying With Orders
On Wednesday, Nema boss Stephen Wambua stated that the contractor had complied with the order and removed the sand which had encroached the ocean and blocked route to public beach.
“An inspection was done and the sand that had been deposited and levelled on the beach has been removed. Our officers took photos as a confirmation that the sand had been removed to allow public access of the beach,” Wambua stated.
He maintained that the probe did not reveal any breach of construction regulations and after the contractor had complied with their order they inspected before giving them a clean bill of health.
The hotel was given a go ahead after it opened the beach access roads, reports which were confirmed by the Mombasa Lands Executive Edward Nyale.
Nyale stated that during the probe, investigators found that the encroachment was the only issue after which they discussed with Nema and the sand removed.
Access to Beach
This year was the second time the hotel developer was at loggerheads with the Mombasa county government after it blocked access to the beach.
The hotel was thrust into the limelight in August when three Nation Media Group journalists were attacked and injured when they visited the site.
The hotel is being constructed on a 10-acre parcel at an estimated cost of Ksh600 million.
