Taj Mall owner Gorasia to vie for Nairobi Senatorial seat on a Wiper party ticket

Controversial businessman Ramesh Gorasia has announced that he will vie for Nairobi Senatorial seat on a Wiper party ticket.

Gorasia, who is also the owner of Taj Mall Embakasi  says he wants to confront the iniquities and injustices city residents have been subjected to for many years.

The business mogul now joins the race to replace Mike Sonko who will contest for governor position.

The race has so far attracted four candidates including Nominated MP Johnson Sakaja, who last week quit Nairobi gubernatorial position for the seat.

Last week, the Wiper Party lead by Kalonzo Musyoka cleared Gorasia for the primaries that will take place next month.

Taj Mall owner Ramesh Gorasia and Jeff Ambundo, a tenant, address the media after Lands ministry hsuspended the revocation of the title for the plot on which Taj Mall in Embakasi sits.

Gorasia has been fighting to save his Sh5.5 billion mall from demolition after the National Land Commission said part of it has resided on the road reserve.

Last year, he refuted claims that he acquired the property fraudulently and blamed corrupt officials in the Lands ministry for his woes.

Kenya Urban Roads Authority said it would demolish part of the building to pave way for the construction of Outer Ring Road.
