Collapsed Huruma Building Was Marked for Demolition

By James Kahongeh

The latest building to collapse in Huruma, Nairobi killing two people had been marked for demolition by the National Construction Authority.

Mathare sub-County Deputy Commissioner Patrick Mwangi said some of the tenants had sneaked back into the condemned building and had been staying there for months.

Authorities said that rescue operations have been delayed with the area difficult to access because of congestion.
