Photos Of Collapsed Kinoo Building Dangerously Leaning On Another In Kiambu County

The National Construction Authority (NCA) has launched an investigation into the circumstances that led to a building in Kinoo, Kiambu County, collapsing on Sunday morning. The property has been roped off by the National Police Service while investigations begin, according to the authority's Executive Director, Maurice Akech, in a statement. "A full report will be provided once exhaustive investigations are completed," he said. A multi-agency team comprised of NCA officers, the National Building Inspectorate, and the National Disaster Management Unit is also conducting the investigation, according to Akech. 

The structure is badly leaning on another building that was already occupied, but the residents were safely evacuated. A nine-story skyscraper under construction in Kiambu's OJ area fell in October of last year. The event occurred less than a month after two additional buildings in Gachie and Kinoo collapsed. As a result of the tragedy, Kiambu Governor James Nyoro formed a task team to assess the structural soundness of structures under construction in the county.
