Dear Members,

As you may be aware, incidences of buildings collapsing and in some cases leading to loss of lives are on the rise particularly in major urban areas.

We welcome the Government efforts in taking stern action against the concerned developers and putting measure in place to prevent future occurrences.

We recognize that key construction industry stakeholders and the general public also have a role to play in addressing this challenge. The Kenya Alliance of Resident Associations (KARA) in partnership with the East African Portland Cement Company Ltd (EAPCC) has therefore organized a series of Residents Dialogue Forum (RDF) to create stakeholders and public awareness, interest and participation in preventing construction and/or occupation of poor quality buildings within their neighbourhoods.    

We are pleased to invite you to the first RDF on quality, safety and compliance to the construction regulations. The forum will be held on Wednesday, 3rd June 2015 from 8.30am to 12 noon at the Laico Regency Hotel, Nairobi. The forum will be addressed by the top leadership of EAPCC; National Construction Authority (NCA); National Environment Management Authority (NEMA); Nairobi City County Government; Ministry of Housing and Planning among others. We request that you confirm your attendance through the contacts below as soon as possible to guarantee your reservation. Please note that participation is strictly by prior confirmation. Thank you.

Regards,

Nancy Kariuki
