“Impunity remains a major factor contributing to the unfortunate incidents that have occurred within the building sector,” said Mr Oundo.
Mr Oundo was referring to the recent collapse of two buildings that were under construction in Nairobi’s Embakasi and Lang’ata estates, where four people were killed and scores injured.
AAK also wants professionals only to be involved in the audit of all buildings in urban areas to determine their structural fitness.
The team of professionals, said Mr Oundo should comprise registered architects, engineers, land surveyors, environmentalists, physical planners, public health and fire fitness officers.
Mr Oundo is of the view that the structures with inadequate structural strength should be demolished while appropriate corrective measures taken on structures that have rectifiable weaknesses.
