@Laura Mwende Alice The Feminist:

Why would a construction approved & supervised by professionals & qualified persons collapse? WHY? You are responsible for the ongoing collapse of such structures!


Kenya is a country of sad people and they look for any opportunity to release their anger. Just read the comments you will think they made it in life and do no mistakes. Those workers on site are not kids and can take precautions too. Mind your language mates

@Daniel Mwaniki:

Regretting is not enough, act! Terminate the contract with the particular company. Are you waiting for any other evidence that they're not up to the task?
