The man who was thrown off the build is currently admitted at a hospital in Kamkunji Sub-County. The man sustained injuries in his legs and hands.

Residents said it was not the first time that the two men have disagreed over money.

“The main suspect is still at large but we are requesting that he should just surrender himself to the police. Otherwise he is complicating the whole matter and will face more charges,” Nairobi police boss Adamson Bungei said.
