Pressure mounts on Nairobi County over demolition of unsafe buildings

0 514

Five storey building that collapsed in Huruma estate claiming the life of three  has put the county government of Nairobi in a tight corner on why the building was never demolished after an audit was done in the area and recommendation  for the same given.

In 2017 National Construction Authority  earmarked  57 buildings for demolition and  described them as most dangerous but the county went ahead to demolish only two leaving 55 buildings untouched.

Residents who spoke to  Ghetto Radio News faulted the county government for negligience  and corruption.

Meanwhile the county executive committee Charles Kerich has defended the county over the matter promising another  buildings audit in Huruma before demolition resumes.

Other areas facing the same challenge are Zimmerman,Githurai and Pipeline.
