National Construction Authority holds meeting to set new building rules

10, May 2016

Stakeholders in the construction industry this morning met to chart a way forward in the demolition of buildings declared unsafe for occupation. The meeting comes days after Nairobi governor Evans Kidero suspended the demolition of buildings condemned by the National Construction Authority for seven days to give affected tenants enough time to find alternative housing. The buildings, which house more than 600 residents, were either substandard or built on unsafe grounds. Today’s meeting comes over a week after a building collapsed in Huruma killing 51 people.
