In April this year, Kenya recorded the collapse of a six storey building collapsed in Nairobi’s Huruma district claiming the lives of 52 people.

The accident led to major crackdown on unauthorized structures in the capital, while the owner of the building and other administrative officers are standing trial on charges of murder and manslaughter.
