The National Disaster Management Unit has asked tenants to move out of a building in Kiambu County after it started sinking.
Mr Pius Masai said that Lancore apartments in Ruaka are sinking and asked the tenants to move out before a disaster struck.
“The building is collapsing. Kindly advise the tenants to vacate immediately and members the public to keep off,” Mr Masai told the Nation in a text message.
“The relevant authorities have been informed to take appropriate actions.”
The building is located at Mini Village on Ruaka-Banana road.
Social media users were Thursday evening sharing pictures of the tenants vacating and the huge pillars plunging into the ground.
The scare comes less than a month after a 10-storey building in Kisii collapsed leaving six dead and 34 injured.
In April, a residential building in Nairobi’s Huruma collapsed leaving 51 dead.
