    This is an unfortunate example of what happens in a fantastically corrupt country where corners are cut and subpar materials are used at the expense of human lives! Zero accountability from top to bottom

    The cement and iron rod companies,contractors,foreman,engineers,building regulators and most importantly the fantastically corrupt government office that awarded that contract must be seriously probed,and sent to jail.

      You can just imagine if they had completed this so-called mall and people were inside shopping when it collapsed. Shameful How was the contract awarded? We need to know. My prayers are with those trapped inside..

    Why is the governor coordinating the rescue? This is something the fire chief or police chief or assistant fire/police chief should be doing. Or a specialist, not a governor. So what if the governor was out of town, would no one be available to coordinate the rescue efforts?
