Speaking at a media briefing Maringa stated that the government will not relent in enforcing the law on developers endangering the public lives by building unsafe buildings.

This comes after a building was demolished in Kayole on Friday after there was public outcry over its safety.

Prof.Maringa has also said the demolition of buildings in Nairobi has not stopped and that they are still ongoing to destroy the buildings that have been build on public land and riparian land.
