Nairobi - Following the incident on Wednesday in Nairobi's Mathare 4A slum that left eight people dead and eight others injured, President Mwai Kibaki has ordered the Provincial Administration to control settlement in landslide prone areas.
In a statement to Capital News, President Kibaki said there was need for pre-emptive and preventative steps to be taken to avoid the occurrence of such disasters, especially now that the long rains have begun in many parts of the country.
The Head of State said the all relevant government agencies should avoid excessive red tape and bureaucracy and provide necessary equipment in times of emergencies.
