Kenyans woke up to a shocking news of the Ofafa Jericho school which had caught fire on Monday night. Though the cause of the fire has not yet been established, investigations are undergoing.
The fire damaged one of the dormitories and about fifty students have been hospitalized.Dr Kanyenje Gakombe the C.E.O and Managing Director of Metropolitan hospital applauded the great teamwork from both the health workers and organisations. The students affected were admitted to the Metropolitan hospital in Buruburu with most of them suffering from smoke inhalation while trying to put out the fire.
Below are some of the pictures from the incident.
School fires are all an interruption to the learning program and also costly in damages but it is also a relief that no life was lost but parents would be out seeking clarity on the cause of the fire and even it is high time we raised the question of how safe are our students in school?
