The word “oba” is translated from the Kazakh as “burial” or “plague”. So it’s not clear what idea was in minds of the developers who gave the name to this micro-district “BesOba”… Though people continue discussions about the house that fell in Karaganda. Its dwellers do not know what to wait while their neighbours leave their flats in fear or start restoring what they have…

They are still removing the ruins after the collapse of the block of building #7 on April, 5th, 2012. 165 persons lived in 65 flats of the collapsed part of the building. From only 28 flats people managed to remove furniture before the evacuation. Now the victims of the collapse live either in the dormitory, in rented flats or at relatives’ and friends’.

Offical reasons of the collapse haven’t been announced yet, though the dwellers suppose that the reason is the foundation built in the wrong way. It was raised on clayey soil and had to stand on poling and not to be a girder one.

Building №7 started sinking on April, 1st, cracks of a hand size appeared in its walls. The dwellers began to be evacuated and after April, 3rd, nobody was allowed to even take their belongings.

Bank loans of the dwellers of the collapsed part of the building amount to 119,6 million tenge, only 17,5 million have been compensated yet.

Saulet, a dweller of building №6 with her son Damir:

– When building №7 fell I was coming back from the clinic. I saw it with my own eyes. It happened very fast. Before it fell I noticed it stood somehow wry. It’s good that nobody was injured. Specialists left sensors everywhere and drilled the wells to get the soil samples but we still do not know the results.

Many dwellers of the building part that remained whole left their flats.

Belongings that were not taken away from building №7 are now being retrieved from under the ruins and put according to sectors corresponding 4 building blocks.

    “Bolat says he’s not afraid because experts have examined the building he lives in.”
