Vihiga: Section of Secondary School dorm razed, no injuries



On Tuesday evening, a portion of a dormitory at Ebunangwe Boy’s Secondary School in Vihiga County caught fire.

Billy Maloba, a witness to the incident, estimates that the fire started at 8 o’clock.

“No one was injured in the accident since it happened when the students were doing their night preps in class,” he said.

Ebunangwe is a mixed boarding and day school.

The school has only one dormitory.

“It was raining around that time so it took a while for people to notice the fire,” Maloba, who said he lives a few metres from the school, said.

He claimed that once the fire was put out by the locals, the Vihiga fire department arrived.

Since property with an unknown value was destroyed, the cause of the fire has not yet been identified.

By the time of publication, the school still had not released a statement regarding the incident.

By Wanja Waweru

The body of a 21-year-old man who attempted to swim in the River Sagana l and drowned has been discovered.

Alex Mande drowned on May 18 and his body was discovered floating in Kengen Dam, some 10 kilometers from where he drowned.

Young Mande, a native of Bungoma in Uganda, perished while learning to swim in the choppy River Sagana in Kirinyaga county.

“The young man was out with his friend when he drowned,” said Joseph Mbirua, a resident of the area.

“His friend tried to help him from the waters but was unable. It was at this point that he raised alarm,” said Mbirua.

Villagers who arrived at the scene tried to search for the body in vain.

“Residents have been holding vigil on the river bank, combing the waters in search of the body until today when we received reports that his body had been discovered,” he said.

“The people of Rukanga stood with us during this difficult time. I would like to thank them and everyone who came to help us,” said Andrew Masiga, one of the family members.

“We are making arrangements to take the body to Bungoma in Uganda,” he said.

The body was taken to Murang’a hospital mortuary.
