Many parts of Kenya have been experiencing heavy rainfall that has caused devastating floods that have claimed the lives of more than 228 people, according to government figures.

Authorities in Nairobi and Kiambu counties are, however, on the record attributing the collapse of buildings to substandard workmanship, flouting construction regulations, and extending apartment floors beyond the original designs.

In November 2022, three people died after a seven-storey building collapsed in Nairobi, while 42 people died in the capital in 2019 after the collapse of a six-storey building.
