The six-storey residence came down in heavy rain, killing at least 23 people.

Dozens of others are still thought to be buried under the rubble, but hopes of finding more alive are fading.

The building had been earmarked for demolition. Its owner was due to appear in court on Tuesday charged with manslaughter.

Samuel Karanja Kamau was arrested on Monday. Officials say he did not have permission to rent out the building’s 119 rooms.

Mr Kamau has not yet commented on the allegation.

About 135 people have been freed so far from the collapsed building, local media report. Another 93 have been reported missing.
