Residents of Eastlands are elated at the news of a decision by National Land Commission to bring down Taj Mall, arguably the ugliest shopping mall in Nairobi.
Many took to twitter to drive the last nails in the coffin of the building which was constructed on a road reserve. The building is being uprooted to pave way for the construction of Outer Ring Road.

Taj mall and the building that housed Nakumatt Thika rd teach us that any development standing on public land will one day come down.

NLC has revoked the title deed for taj mall. KURA has been given the go ahead to bring it down. Sirikal. Heh! pic.twitter.com/0yUW3FjbVu

What's all this hullaballoo about Taj Mall? Even a two-year old knows the building couldn't stand the test of times from its inception.
