Rescue mission is ongoing in Kapkugerwet Ward, Ainamoi Sub-County, Kericho County after a 4-storey apartment collapsed at around 7pm on Tuesday, June 9.

The exact number of occupants in the building remains unestablished, though K24 Digital understands that tens of victims have been accounted for and moved to safety.

Three of the four floors have since been reduced to rubble. Only the fourth floor remains somehow undestroyed.

The building known as Tebsview Apartment is a residential structure which is said to house nearly 100 people.

It is suspected soggy soil due to heavy rains pounding Kericho and poor quality of materials and workmanship led to the building’s collapse.

More soon.
