The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

On April 30 last year the NCA stopped con­struc­tion in Kisii town of 20 build­ings, in­clud­ing those by the Na­tional Hous­ing Cor­po­ra­tion. The NCA said the build­ings did not meet safety stan­dards. Engi­neer Chris­pus Ndiyo, in charge of com­pli­ance at the NCA, said some de­vel­op­ers hire un­qual­i­fied con­trac­tors. Later in May, the author­ity stopped con­struc­tion of 280 houses in the town, cit­ing non-com­pli­ance with stan­dards. This was trig­gered by the col­lapse of a five-storey build­ing in Jo­goo es­tate on April 16.
