This is second building to come down in the country this week.
On Tuesday, a building under construction collapsed in Kasarani, Nairobi killing at least three people.
The blame for such should not be pushed to the Citizens, but the Government.
Kenyans keep losing lives while the officials who approve these buildings get promoted, drive top of the range vehicles and enjoy hefty salaries.. They move on to approve the next substandard building.. How they don't get interdicted is a miracle
