At the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), the owner of the building that collapsed and killed two people at Ruaka in Kiambu County last week was detained as he tried to flee the country.
Kiambu County Commissioner Joshua Nkanatha stated that the owner of the Ruaka building is presently being held at a Kiambu police station while awaiting transport to court while speaking at the scene of another building that collapsed on Monday morning in Ruiru town.
According to Nkanatha, charges of causing deaths and damage to other people’s properties may be brought against the property owner as well as other parties involved, such as county authorities and engineers.
“There is loss of life and damage of property, people died in Kirigiti and Ruaka so there are so many things that we are looking at,” the commissioner told a local daily.
