Noela Musundi of the Kenya Red Cross confirmed that “there were no casualties, but property got destroyed”.

Nairobi governor Mike Sonko visited the scene on Saturday morning and pledged to stand with those affected as they build their lives afresh.

Residents stated that cracks began to appear on the building at 10 PM on Friday, prompting occupants to move out.

However, property of unknown value was destroyed as the building caved in before much could be salvaged.
