Third body retrieved from a storey building under construction that collapsed

A two-storey building under construction has collapsed in Mamboleo, Kisumu county. As at 5:47pm, three bodies have been retrieved from the collapsed building.

At least seven people have been rescued and taken to hospital. Several others were still trapped under the rubble.

Search and rescue operations are ongoing.

A woman who hawks food at the construction site is among those trapped. 

The National Construction Authority (NCA) has told The Standard that the collapsed building was inspected twice and activities at the site stopped in May 2021 over safety concerns. NCA however claims that the owner continued with construction behind their back and did not have approval.

It is very touching to lose lives just like that and it will force children to the woman who hawks food at the construction site to be orphans. May the families that lost their loved take heart at this difficult times.
