The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is building for the future with extensive investment in its country wide infrastructure. One major project involved developing and upgrading five major hospitals. However, unhealthy on one of the sites, sickness the planned expansion overlapped the location of an established mosque.

The obvious approach would be to demolish the existing building and put up a new one nearby. But this would be heavily disruptive to the rituals of local worshipers and add many months to the project timelines.The solution was to relocate the mosque in one piece, a task never completed before in Saudi Arabia.

See above how it was done and leave your comment if you think such can be done in Kenya, especially where people have built on road reserves and are required to vacate the sites.
