84-year-old Woman Dead as wall collapsed in Mowlem, Nairobi


An 84-year-old woman has reportedly died after a wall that was under renovation collapsed on her house in Nairobi’s Mowlem area.

According to reports, Anna Muthike was in her house on Wednesday evening when her neighbour was busy renovating his wall.

The police said a section of the concrete wall collapsed on the woman’s iron sheet-made house and trapped her therein for long, killing her.

Those working on the wall rushed to her rescue in vain. Police said the locals said they found the body under the debris.

The body was removed minutes later as police arrived at the scene and moved it to the mortuary as investigations go on.

Police disclosed their intention to take action against the owner of the wall that collapsed and killed the woman.
