Fort Jesus, Kenya’s historical monument located in Mombasa is reportedly on the cusp of crumbling.  The 500-year-old historical structure has allegedly developed cracks as a result of strong ocean waves. Amran Hussein, the Keeper, Antiquities, Sites and Monuments in the Coast region said the building, which was designed by Italian architect Joao Babtista Cairato developed a major fissure at its footing after it was hit by extremely strong water waves.
