The Mombasa county government has stopped the construction of three buildings to avert the crisis of collapsing buildings.

The county has further ordered the immediate stoppage of rogue constructions.
It has also declared prosecution of developers responsible for the said buildings regularization of non-compliant developments and automation of the approval processes.
