In a news brief repoted by Radio Maisha at 2 p.m, A headteacher of a local primary school in Busia has been left homeless after an inferno razed down his house. The incident occurred in Modoma village, Funyula Sub County earlier today.
Mr. Cleophas Patel, the victim, says the fire started when he went to the shop to buy some personal necessities. He came back shortly only to find his house and car up in flames.
The neighbors hurriedly fetched water and plucked branches in an effort to put out the fire after he sounded the alarm. They eventually managed to put out the fire but unfortunately weren't able to salvage anything from the fire outbreak.
Mr. Patel said he highly suspects his wife was the perpetrator of the fire since she was nowhere to be seen at that time. He claims his wife used petrol to burn down the house after they had a domestic quarrel.
Among the valuables that got burned by the fire were his Bajaj motorbike, his newly bought Toyota Delta car, and all of his personal identification, work, and qualifications documents.
The area Chief David Okuku confirmed the incident and urged the residents to find more amicable and approachable ways to solve their domestic differences rather than resort to extreme measures.
He nonetheless promised that the police will be on the lookout for the suspect and will not escape from the grasp of justice.
