Residents of Kinoo area in Kiambu have reported the collapse of a 6-storey building on the morning of Friday, September 3, 2021.

The building is said to have caved in at around 2 pm when the workers were putting up a slab for the sixth floor.

Days prior, a crane crashed into a building under construction in Kilimani area, killing nine people.

The crane was being used to ferry construction material to the 10th and 11th floors of the upcoming 14-storey Qwetu Student Residence.
