There has been a bomb scare on Thursday afternoon at Doctors Park in Parklands that saw people being evacuated from the building.

Nairobi News has established that word went around that a bomb had been set up in the 12-story building.

Mary Muthoni, who works on the building, told Nairobi News that people started evacuating the building after they had rumors there was a bomb.

“Currently, people are being evacuated from the building. This is after word went round that there was a bomb that had been placed somewhere in the building,” she said.
