At least seven pupils have been confirmed dead and over 50 others injured after classrooms collapsed on them at Precious Talent School on Ngong Road in Nairobi.

The affected classrooms were in a two-storey building that caved in at around 6.50am.

Government spokesperson Colonel Cyrus Oguna had placed the number of injured pupils at 57 but the number has since risen with 64 pupils being admitted at Kenyatta National Referral Hospital.

Col. Oguna further stated that the government would cater for the medical bills of the injured pupils.

Sixty-two pupils were admitted at KNH with soft tissue injuries while two others require special medical attention.

Meanwhile, the school managers could not immediately confirm how many learners were in class at the time of the incident.


The top floor of the building was housing the junior primary pupils but the most affected learners are those in Class 6, Class 7 and Class 8 on the ground floor.
