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.
