Kiambu Governor Kimani Wamatangi leads residents in rescue operations.

Sombre mood has clouded Kirigiti Village in Kiambu County where three people have died and six others injured after a six-storey building collapsed this Monday morning.

The first-term Kiambu Governor Kimani Wamatangi and police officers were on site early morning to lead the rescue operations. 

In a social media post, Wamatangi said several people had been trapped in the debris and rescue operations are still underway. 

 

"Several people have already been pulled out of the rubble, and rushed to the hospital. Sadly, some are feared to have succumbed to their injuries. 

Through the combined efforts of the Kiambu County Fire & Disaster Management Department, Kenya Police, Kenya Defence Forces, Kenya Red Cross and volunteers, the search continues for those trapped under the debris," said the governor. 

It is now evident that the County Fire & Disaster Management Departments for all the 47 Counties need to be robust and effective.
