Cases of fire have been rampant in public secondary schools in Kenya in the recent past mainly affecting school dormitories. The fire incidents are alleged to be caused by unrest amongst learners for undefined reasons.
These fires have destroyed millions of shillings worth of property in the schools which has left many parents with little to do but foot the bills.
However on another sad note, property of unknown value was razed to the ground on Tuesday, January 25, after fire razed down a dormitory in Khwisero Secondary School.
The fire is said to have been caused by an electrical fault. However, no injuries were reported.
At the time of the incident, students were in class for morning preps.

The investigations have been launched to unravel the cause of this fire that has left property of unknown value destroyed.
School unrest has been a menace in the education sector since learners resumed studies after a long Covid-19 break.
Only last year there were over 100 arson attacks in schools that paralyzed learning in most public schools.
