“Green Mamba” gets back to job as Nairobi demolitions take to Kayole following disaster alert

Nairobi residents and Kenyans at large came to fall in love with “Mr Sunny”, AKA “Green Mamba” who became famous after the government ordered for demolitions of all buildings standing on riparian land in Nairobi. Sunny is the green colored excavator that was moving around Nairobi to bring down the marked buildings, thus the name Green Mamba.

After Sunny went silent from its latest job on Airgate Mall, formerly Taj Mall in Embakasi South, Kenyans of goodwill took to social media to alert a disaster that was looming in Nairobi’s Kayole area.

They called for the intervention of governor Mike Sonko to help bring down a building raised at App Bee Centre, Harry’s Tavern, towards Kayole that posed a life disaster to people.

As a response to the quest, the Nairobi county government has ordered the demolition of a seven-storey building along Kayole Spine Rd.

A photo of the ‘visibly faulty’ structure at Bee Centre, Umoja was widely shared on social media on Wednesday.

The developer was ordered to demolish the block in an enforcement notice issued on November 9.

The developer was also asked to submit the structural integrity report on the same within seven days.

“You are hereby required to stop further construction immediately and submit architectural and structure plant,” the notice reads.

The notice elapsed on Wednesday, November 16.

A demolition drive targetting such buildings and those put up on riparian lands has stopped for lack of cash.
