Rescue and emergency teams have shifted their focus to the 19 people listed as missing in the aftermath of the Huruma building tragedy that left at least 51 people dead.
With fears that some people could have drowned while escaping from the ill fated building, rescue teams have extended their efforts to the nearby Nairobi River and its environs.
The latest development coming as governor’s spouses led by Susan Kidero visited the affected families at the Huruma social hall donating 200, 000 shillings to the victims of the tragedy.
They called on those still residing in houses earmarked for demolition to move out to avert a possible disaster.
The County government of Nairobi has given tenants of houses marked for demolition in Huruma seven days to find alternative accommodation.
Close to 78 houses in the area will be demolished with 10 of the buildings already brought down.
The number of those rescued stand at 140 with incident Commander Pius Masai saying that 13 bodies are yet to be identified.
Meanwhile, a section of the five storied Nyali Centre in Mombasa collapsed Monday morning due to what residents said was structural deficiencies.
County Urban planning executive Francis Thoya said sections of the premises, including Java House, the Boxing Lounge and several banks, were closed. No injuries were reported.
