Langata hotel linked to Ruto ordered to vacate grabbed land

Nairobi - Weston Hotel, which has been at the centre of the Langata playground grabbing saga has been ordered to vacate the land it has been built on, as it was apparently grabbed.
The Hotel has been in the news lately for being behind the grabbing of the Langata Road Primary School playground and now is in even more trouble.
In a letter written to the hotel management by a Nairobi law firm and seen by News24, the Hotel has been told to return its fake title deed to the National Lands Commision for evaluation.
The letter claims that the land that the hotel is built on is owned by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority KCAA and that the hotel is illegally on the piece of land.
The law firm behind the letter is the Anyegah and Advocates LTD and the person behind the whole saga, a Nairobi businessman Jacob Juma.
" Between the year 2001 and 2002, you illegally obtained a piece of land belonging to the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority KCAA along Langata Road, opposite The Wilson Airport and next to the Langata Road Primary School," the letter said in part.
" Our instructions are to demand your immediate surrender of the illegal title to the National Lands Commision for rectification and registration back to the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority. Further, you are instructed to demolish the illegal structure erected on the property, of course at your own cost," the letter added.
The hotel is rumoured to be owned by Deputy President William Ruto but official documents state that the hotel is owned by a MR Patrick Osero, a close friend of the DP, to whom the letter is addressed to.
