NEMA allowed Weston Hotel to extend Dolphin Hotel’s construction into the Indian Ocean, a search on the agency’s web portal has revealed.

The extension was approved under reference NEMA/EIA/PSR/6347, a search found on Friday.

Weston Hotel, which made the said application, is owned by Deputy President William Ruto, who has been on the spot for building it on land belonging to the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority.

KCAA executive director Gilbert Kibe said the plot on Langata Road in Nairobi is among hundreds of parcels that it wants to reclaim.

Dolphin shot to the limelight on Wednesday when two Nation Media journalists were roughed up for recording operations around its construction.

Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho’s administration has since started a probe on beach encroachment by the project in Shanzu.

The owners of Dolphin Hotel have been accused of flouting building regulations and Muslims for Human Rights group (MUHURI) has warned that it will seek court orders to stop the construction.

The rights lobby announced the move on Friday following the arrest of NMG journalists Karim Rajan and Laban Walloga.
