Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday visited the site in Nairobi's Huruma residential estate where a building collapsed, killing 7 people and injuring more than 130 others on Friday night.

Kenyatta who braved the rainy and chilly weather to see how far rescue efforts, which were hampered by rains, have reached. He also ordered relevant government agencies to carry out audit of houses at risk in the area.
