Senior Counsel Ahmednassir Abdullahi on Friday, October 8, revealed clandestine and elaborate plans by the Uhuru government to use goons and excavators to demolish DP Ruto’s Weston Hotel.
In a statement on twitter, the Senior Counsel revealed that the operation was called off after those who had issued instructions changed their mind.
“As counsel on record for Weston Hotel, I can officially confirm that the Government of the Republic of Kenya 48 hours ago sent tractors and goons to demolish the Hotel. The operation was called off after the tractors reached the hotel and the powers that be changed their mind,” Ahmednassir stated.

On Wednesday evening, many social media users were left astounded after Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi alleged that there were plans to demolish the hotel at night.
Additionally, Sudi shared photos of bulldozers that had allegedly been deployed to carry out the demolition.
“The Deep State are indeed cornered. They have today decided to express their fury by attempting to demolish Weston Hotel,” Oscar Sudi wrote on Facebook.
But on Thursday, Weston Hotel issued a statement asking its clients to disregard the rumours.
“We would like to clarify and assure our esteemed guests and the general public that the hotel operations are smoothly running without any interruption. Any contrary information should be disregarded,” reads an excerpt of the statement.
The controversial hotel has lately been at the center of political wars with opponents of the DP saying that the land it sits on was grabbed from KAA.
The DP has vehemently defended himself saying that he used the right channels to buy the land that he used to acquire a 1 billion loan.
On setting the record straight, senior counsel Ahmednassir further stated that his capacity as a counsel did not allow him to falsify such a grave matter.
