After a building collapsed last week;which is not the first one actually; finally the government has taken a staunch action. They marked the buildings,told people to vacate and started bulldozing them. Those who had to vacate had no-where to go but i still believe this is for the better. Those buildings are next to the river and for the sake of their lives it is better that way.

What are these people supposed to do? One moment they had housing and the next, they are out in the streets. That is not a good way to treat people. Why are the buildings collapsing ?It sounds dangerous for sure. I just worry about homeless people, especially families caught in something they have no control over.

I worry about them too but then again their lives are in danger already if they continue to live in them

@Missmwngi You think they would find them some temporary housing until they figure out what to do. The builder should pay the expenses.

Was the building very old already or the foundation is weak? Good thing on one was hurt.

I definitely agree. It's better to have a loss of some profit or money in building than risk the lives of several people. On top of that, if it's next to a river, they should have no issue rebuilding and gaining back whatever it is that they lose with the demolishing of the buildings, if the river is clean or doesn't stink.
