A five-storey residential building collapsed on Monday in Ruiru on the outskirts of the capital, Nairobi, barely a day after its tenants were evacuated.
The evacuation was witnessed by the local governor, Kimani Wamatangi, on Sunday after the building developed cracks.
It had more than 100 tenants, according to local media outlets.
The National Construction Authority was earlier reported to have found it to be structurally unsound.
Meanwhile, South Africa’s power utility Eskom has run out of money to buy diesel for its critical plants, according to the minister of public enterprises.
It means people will experience rolling blackouts of up to six hours a day.
In a statement, Minister Pravin Gordhan said that his department would be working with the national treasury to find money to buy supplies of diesel. END
