Ruiru Building Collapses

In Kiambu County's Ruiru Town, a five-story structure has collapsed. On Sunday afternoon, cracks were noticed on the building's pillars, and hours later, more than 100 tenants had been evacuated. Following complaints of the risk from the National Construction Authority (NCA) and the Ruiru OCPD, the rescue efforts were spearheaded on Sunday by Kiambu Governor Kimani Wamatangi and firefighters. “Tenants can no longer stay in this house because its columns- which are supposed to support it have cracked. It cannot stand for long. If not for the neighbouring house that is supporting it, it could already be down,”  Wamatangi said while leading the rescue operations on Sunday. Within a week, Kiambu has experienced two building collapses, including this one. In Ruaka, Kiambu County, another five-story structure collapsed on November 17. Two occupants were killed when a nearby house was struck by a falling building.

Kenya’s troubles with the developing public debt had been introduced to mild after it failed to make repayments on the Chinese loans given for the building of the widespread gauge railway (SGR). According to Treasury papers acquired by way of Business Daily, Kenya was fined Sh1.312 billion with the aid of Chinese banks for mortgage defaults in the fiscal year that ended in June. To finance the constructing of the SGR from Mombasa to Naivasha, Kenya accessed more than 500 billion shillings from Chinese lenders, led by ability of the Export-Import Bank of China. Due to inadequate revenue from the passenger and cargo offerings provided on the track—which totaled Sh18.5 billion in the fiscal 12 months ending in June in opposition to income of Sh15 billion—taxpayers have been compelled to undergo the rate of the SGR loans.

Make a point of seeing the shipping container you intend to purchase inorder to avoid being sold defective or rusty containers that will be costly to restore to proper working conditions.  2.
