Seems our infrastructure is very questionable if the wave of various building collapses is anything to go by.
At around 9 pm last night a 6 story building collapsed in Huruma area coming after another building collapsed in Makongeni a few weeks ago. With most residents of the building already asleep at that time the collapse has left scores of them trapped. Early reports indicate that 3 floors of the 6 story building collapsed leading to several people being trapped under the rubble. City officials said 22 survivors had been pulled out of the rubble of the building but said it was unclear how many others were still trapped.

As per now Kenya Red cross reports that 38 casualties have been received at Kenyatta National hospital with 3 of them discharged. So far 2 bodies have been retrieved from the rubble.
