Another Kenyan school dormitory went up in flames on Sunday, raising questions about who is responsible for the rampant incidents.
Nairobi’s highway secondary school is the latest school that has reported a fire incident. The fire broke out at its four-storey building on Sunday night. The whole top floor of the building was completely devastated.
The school’s management is yet to reveal the value of the property destroyed in the inferno. The cause of the fire is yet to be established.
On June 16, fire razed down Olkejiado Boys High school’s dormitory. About eighty students’ bedding and personal effects were destroyed in the fierce inferno. The school is located in Kajiado County, south of Nairobi.
The school’s principal James Pasiany told the media that a water shortage thwarted their effort to put out the fire.
An electrical fault was suspected to be the cause of the fire.
A week earlier, a dormitory belonging to Moi Gesusu High School in Kisii, southwestern Kenya, went up in flames.
The cause of the fire was unknown, and an investigation has been launched into the matter.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
