Family in Unbearable Pain as Two Form Two Siblings are Burned Beyond Recognition in Kericho County

A Kericho family is yet to come to terms with Saturday's early morning incident where two of their sons died. The two boys aged 16 and 17 are said to have been burned to death in the house they were living in at around 3 am on Saturday morning.

According to the chief of Tendwet village in Ainamoi , the two were burned beyond recognition, the time it was realized that their house was on fire it was too late to save them, the villagers who responded to the wails of the family tried their best to distinguish the fire raging the single roomed house but their effort proved futile.

The cause of the fire is yet to be established but it is believed to be an electrical fault. The area chief Moses Langat sent his condolences to the family promising a thorough investigation to comb out any possibilities.

The death of the two form two students of a nearby day school is a blow to the family who will not only be forced to bury their bodies but their young and hopeful dreams.

Their bodies have been taken to Kericho county referral hospital as the investigation commences.
