The siblings were in the house alone when the fire broke out and it is suspected the siblings had lit a candle because darkness had entered, before the calamity. Their mother, a businesswoman in Yonda market had apparently handed them over to a boda boda rider to take them home, while she was left in the market clearing on the day’s business.
The assistant chief Collins Njeru said he received a call at around 10:00pm over the fire incident, then he went towards the direction and upon arriving found that it was true that the house had caught fire. He immediately informed the police from Gachoka police station, who responded immediately.
On his statement, the assistant chief said" Watoto walikua wametumwa na mama yao waende nyumbani kabla yeye afunge kazi ndio awafuatilie na ndio sasa tunasema lazima tupee wenye wanafanya uchuguzi wakati wafanye uchuguzi wa kina,”. He warned parents against leaving children alone in the houses, which put them in such risks .
So far, the mother to the children together with the bodaboda rider have been questioned.
The bodies of the three have been moved to Embu level 5 hospital motuary
