              The collapsed Buidling was right opposite this one
This Photograph was taken in December 2008 and by this time the old shops other than the collapsed foundation were still operational.

Down town Kampala on Thursday suffered another set back after Owino market being gutted by fire a day before. A building on Sinaibir Amir Street collapsed trapping some of the workers who were on the site at the time.

Tourist hotel, Capital Shoppers, Nakasero Market and a few new buildings are neighboring this foundation that collapsed. Originally these were shops specializing in windows for houses and the lower part of the road specializes in Moslem wear and other accessories.

One person was killed and three others were rushed to hospital and by today they were discharged. They later reported to the police station and furnished the police with every detail they would recall.

Meanwhile one of the buildings next to the collapsed foundation has developed a crack sending fresh fears to the people who operate within that area. Authorities have also warned that only 10% of the buildings in Kampala meet the required standards, otherwise the rest of the buildings could pose a security threat according to local TV and Radio news.

Last year a building on Lumumba Avenue belonging to National Social Security Fund (NSSF) collapsed killing over 5 people. The construction was being done by Roko Construction and since then, the construction has been halted.

Those so-called property mugals along with their engineers should be jailed for deliberately causing death and bodily harm to their poor workers. Its due to their substandard works that buildings are killing the innocent poor ones that are out there to look for monies to survive

All buildings under construction should be inspected frequently to ensure the required standards and building regulations are stuck on.
