A two storey building at Mamboleo area of Kisumu county collapsed some hours back and killed people. According to Radio maisha, four people including a hardworking woman who was selling food to the contractors died on the spot but her body was not yet removed from the blocks of the fallen building.
It is said that the building did not meet the required standards of safety and construction.
It has been a norm to the builders and owners of such storey houses to refuse following the correct procedures of making sure the buildings are safe.
This was lastly seen at Kinoo area of Kiambu county where a video trends online of the five storeyed building that was yet to collapse and could end up in many deaths.
The National Construction Authority should be very keen in following each storey construction to avoid more deaths.
May I pass my condolences to the families that have lost their loved ones.
