6 killed in a building collapse

afrol News, 27 February - At least six labourers were killed and several others are trapped after a five storey building under construction collapsed in Uganda’s capital Kampala yesterday, a police official confirmed.

The official said out of 24 workers working on side, six workers were taken to hospital with severe injuries after they were removed from the rubble, few minutes after the building tumbled.

A survivor Levi Mugasa said as they worked on the site in Kampala the building began to shake, then was immediately followed by a wall collapsing on workers inside the building.

Mr Mugasa said he survived because he stood near a pillar that shielded him from the collapsing debris.

Ugandan civil engineers have complained that not all companies constructing buildings were following safety and labour regulations, exposing their workers and the public to unnecessary risks.
