Several Trapped After Building Collapses in Ruiru, Kiambu

At least three people are believed to have died while trapped inside the building, which collapsed at around 10am.

Already, Kiambu County firefighters are struggling to rescue those trapped in collaboration with police and National Construction Authority (NCA) officials.

The demolished building was intended to be demolished by the Kenya National Highway Authority (KENHA) to allow for the expansion of the Eastern Bypass which is under construction.

According to one of the firefighters, they have asked for reinforcements from the Kenyan military and the NYS to intensify rescue operations.
