Few buildings cater for needs of the disabled

A proprietor of a public building shall adapt it to suit persons with disabilities — Article 22 (1) of the Persons with Disability Act 2003. It is six years since Parliament passed this legislation yet it is still business as usual in so as far as housing construction is concerned. So, who is sleeping on the job — Parliament, Government or the disabled themselves? Why is Kenya not living up to the obligations of this legislation? Safety and accessibility standards, their monitoring and enforcement have become thorny, especially after the recent Nakumatt fire tragedy.
