3 Children Burnt To Death In TransNzoia

The three children aged four, two years and nine months were burnt in their house after their mother allegedly locked the children in the house early in the morning and went to fetch water.


According to a neighbour, Geoffrey Kapello, the children may have played with a match box causing the fire.


Neighbours who rushed to the scene were unable to save anything.


Leaders from West Pokot and Trans Nzoia counties are now asking the counties to invest in fire extinguishers to help when such disasters occur.


The leaders also pointed out that the counties have lost millions of shillings to fire due to lack of equipment.


The residents have also asked the West Pokot County to set up a hospital in the area to help them seek quick medical services when such incidents occur.
