Anger and concern is building among homeowners who are seeing their literal lives be put at risk due to construction

Earlier this morning, Malta suffered yet another unacceptable building failure as a wall of a Ħamrun block of apartments, which housed four families, was torn out by neighbouring construction works.

While, thankfully, no one was injured in the collapse, this, coupled with the fact that multiple other buildings have suffered similar fates just recently, leading to Maltese social media users to express their disgust publicly.

Politicians from both sides of the room condemned the cowboy situation Malta currently finds itself in

One user compared the construction industry in Malta to Lego

And another Maltese person came up with a five-step solution to fix the problem

People wondered what had led to all these collapses now, while others questioned how the people who lived in those houses would be treated now that they were practically homeless

And as people called for citizens to rise up in anger at the current crisis, others were cynical about just how much will be done now

"If you're not angry, you're not paying attention."
