An hour or two ago, Buruburu Girls High School in Nairobi became the subject of attention by all kenyans after disturbing videos viewed by this writer online showed distressed school going girls jumping from their dormitories on top floors of the building.
However, as at the time of publication of this article, there was an update issued by Metropolitan Hospital in Nairobi which had admitted 59 students from the institution after a distress call was raised.
In a follow-up Tweet, the medical establishment informed the country that at least 30 students have been stabilized and discharged from hospital.
"Our team of trauma and emergency medicine have stabilized and discharged a total of 30 students already," it said.
At the same time, the national police service has finally come out to break its silence on the matter that has drawn a lot of public interest due to its sensitive nature.
As Capital FM reports, the fire at the school has been fully contained and more positive to note is that no pupil had fire burns. The police also indicated that investigations have already commenced on the unfortunate incident.
