The residents have urged the county government to move with speed and shut down the restaurant and revoke all the licenses and approvals.
“We are aggrieved that The Summer House, which opened its doors to the public two months ago, did not follow the prerequisite process when seeking to develop the property as is required by the law,” Association Chairperson Silalteh Samora said.
Samora further noted that there was no public participation before the restaurant was set up, adding that there is no change of user of the property from residential to commercial.
“No public announcement in any daily newspaper was made notifying members of the public about The Summer House development,” he added.
The restaurant was launched on November 18, three months after it was opened, in an event graced by among others former Lang’ata MP Nixon Korir and footballers McDonald Mariga and Victor Wanyama.
Members of the first family, Charlene and Cherono and President William Ruto’s son-in-law, Dr. Alexander Ezenagu were present.
