Two Dead After Building Under Construction Collapses in Rongai

Two workers died while four others escaped unhurt when a building under construction collapsed in Ongata Rongai, Kajiado county on Sunday morning.

Paul Nyalombe, 32, and 21-year-old George Omondi were sleeping in the building when it collapsed at about 3am.

Two people usually spent their nights in the building, while others slept in a mabati house behind the structure, said Wycliffe Omondi, one of those who escaped.

Omondi said he alerted the others when he noticed the building shaking, following the start of the construction of the sixth floor last Friday, but did not think it would collapse.
