A bridge under construction has collapsed just 14 days after Presient Uhuru Kenyatta inspected it.

Sigiri Bridge was still under construction in Budalang’i Constituency of Busia County, but locals were shocked to see it collapse Monday morning.

The bridge construction was a KShs 1.2bn project.

It was being constructed by the Chinese Overseas Construction and Engineering Company.

The cause of the collapse is yet to be established but critics claim it the bridge construction was rushed ahead of the president’s inspection tour a fortnight ago.
