Lack of equipment hampers Kisii rescue building efforts

The National Disaster Management Unit (NDMU) has appealed for cutters and drillers to aid in the rescue of those they believe remain trapped underneath the rubble of the 10-storey building that collapsed in Kisii Town yesterday.

Death toll from the tragedy has reached six with more than 40 others left injured following the collapse of the building that was still under construction.

Deputy Director of the NDMU Mwachi Pius Masai who is leading the rescue efforts said the number of recorded injuries stand at 44 with rescue efforts ongoing.

“The building was under construction but there were kiosks next to it and passer-bys. That’s why we believe many remain trapped but the going is slow because we lack the necessary equipment,” Mwachi told reporters.

Nyanza regional police coordinator Willy Lugusa had indicated that police are looking for the owner and contractor of the building along the Daraja Moja-Nyambera Road to help with investigations.
