At least three people were trapped on Monday, after a building under construction collapsed in Gachie, Kiambu county.

Families leaving near the building on Construction have been left counting loses after the five-storey residential building collapsed and fell on structures near it.

According to reports by Kiambu County commander Ali Nuno, more than 10 people are feared to have been trapped but no reports of any death so far.
