Screengrabs of 1824 nightclub being demolished.

Popular Lang’ata road nightclub 1824 has been demolished two months after it was shut down and later reopened.

Videos and photos shared across social platforms on Friday showed bulldozers ravaging through the iconic entertainment joint as debris scattered across the place where it previously stood.

The videos also captured people trying to secure some of the remains from the demolitions as others were seen rummaging through the debris and carting away valuables.

Crates filled with alcohol were seen arranged outside as onlookers stood at a distance watching.

The demolition comes the High Court last month declined to lift orders freezing assets amounting to Ksh.643.2 million belonging to 1824 owner Wilson Nahashon Kanani.

This came after Justice Esther Maina on September 13, 2023, barred Kanani from dealing with his properties including high-end vehicles, houses, and pieces of land, as well as Ksh.48 million held in several bank accounts.

The order was issued after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) filed a case seeking to seize the Nairobi County government employee’s assets whose source he could not explain.

EACC, in its case, claimed that Kanani was a Development Control Officer II at the Urban Planning Department of the Nairobi County government earning a monthly gross salary of Ksh.88, 530, or a net of Ksh.55,866.

The entertainment joint was initially shut down on December 20, 2023 in the presence of uniformed police officers.

Below are reactions from Kenyans online following the development:
