Nairobi county government has demolished a faulty building spotted at Bee Center along the Kayole Spine Rd.

Caroline Wanjiru, owner of the condemned seven-storey building, was arrested minutes before the demolition began.

She was arrested in a multi-agency team led by City Hall officials after an uproar by Kenyans.

Kenyans on social media raised concerns on how the building was approved and whether those behind the construction were concerned about safety of would-be occupants.

Wanjiru faces the charge of constructing a building without approvals by the Nairobi county government.

Governor Mike Sonko warned of serious punishment for individuals putting up buildings in Nairobi county without genuine approvals.
