An unidentified number of people are trapped after a two storey building collapsed in Kisumu’s Mamboleo area.
Among those trapped are three women who were serving food.
Seven people, among them a mother and child, have so far been rescued and taken to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital for treatment.
Evacuation efforts are still ongoing.
This comes a week after a five-storey building in Kinoo, Kiambu County partially collapsed.
The building was on September 6 brought down following orders from the county government and the National Construction Authority (NCA).
NCA engineers said the building developed cracks and started crumbling due to foundation subsidence hence a stop order on September 3.
According to Institute of Quantity Surveyors of Kenya (IQSK), the constructors were unlicensed.
“The leaning five-story structure in Kinoo might have been averted if thorough compliance had been observed,” said IQSK president James Munene.
