    In Ruaka, a building collapsed claiming the lives of a family.

    Published on

    Early on Thursday morning, a structure under construction in Ruaka, Kiambu County, crashed on a couple’s home, killing them.

    A man and a woman were sleeping in their iron sheet cottage next to the construction site when the six-story structure collapsed around 3.30 a.m. along Old Ruaka Road.

    There was a lot of grief among the deceased’s loved ones in Ruaka.

    Antony Karomo, who had just discovered his older brother dead, fought back tears as he recounted his reaction upon arriving at the site.

    “When I heard the blast, I hurried outside since I live in the adjacent building. We removed the debris with the assistance of others who had arrived, but sadly, my brother and his wife had passed away, he recalled.

    Their three children, who reside in another house inside the compound, were unhurt.

    The site’s guards were able to flee without harm.

    The governor of Kiambu, Kimani Wamatangi, came to express his condolences to the family in person.
