Tenants of collapsed Ruaka Apartments defy vacation orders


RUAKATenants of Grafion Apartments whose wall caved in on Tuesday evening have defied orders by the National Construction Authority officials to vacate the apartment.

Some tenants who spoke to Ghetto Radio claim that the notice was short and that it would require them to make arrangements before they move.

Some however stated that they are making the necessary arrangements to vacate the apartments before a bigger disaster happens.


The apartment’s wall caved in on Tuesday night after heavy rains exposing the parking lot.

The Secretary to  National Building Inspectorate Moses Nyakiongora said that the collapsed wall at Grafion Apartment was as a result of unprofessional engineering at the construction in the adjacent plot.

Five vehicles were damaged when the parking space caved in  and vehicles trickled downslope to the pit excavated by the adjacent constructors.

No casualties were reported.

NCA has suspended construction works in the neighboring land until structural and engineering concerns are addressed.
