Improve buildings' safety

The death toll from the recently collapsed building in Murang’a rose to six people by yesterday’s count.
Cases of buildings collapsing while still under construction have gone up exponentially, a pointer to the falling standard in building construction and the fact that agencies mandated to oversee safety in buildings have failed in their duties.
