“They had good intentions to help this school but an accident has happened,” he stated.

Government Spokesperson Cyrus Oguna, who was present at the scene described the tragedy as saddening.

"We are saddened by the tragedy. We can only give you indicative figures. following the collapse of the building, there have been seven fatalities. 57 students who have been injured have been taken to hospital," Oguna stated.
