Demolition of sub-standard buildings begin
The demolition of sub-standard building in Nairobi has begun with some 204 houses marked.
This follows the lapse of the seven day amnesty issued by the county government.
The buildings to be demolished are in Dagoretti, Umoja, Thika Road, South B, Zimmerman and Huruma.
Huruma has the highest number of condemned buildings at 58, followed by Zimmerman with 28.
In South B, 19 houses in Hazina Estate, owned by the National Social Security Fund managers, are also said to be at risk of demolition.
The rampant collapse of buildings in the city has been blamed on lack of coordination among regulatory bodies that oversee different segments of the sector.
