Fire burns down several homesteads at Southlands, Langata

Fire burns down several homesteads at Southlands, Langata

More than a hundred people have been left homeless after fire engulfed several structures at Southlands, Langata tonight.
No established cause has been stated yet to the effect of the fire outbreak.

According to some of the residents, the fire is believed to have been caused by spilt petrol but the real cause will be established upon investigation.

The incident has seen the resident crying out to the wherebouts of their Governor, Hon. Mike Mbuvi Sonko, who they claimed should be of help. One of them was actually heard saying, “Sonko ako wapi ?  Ako wapi Sonko ?  Na vile alikua hapa wa kwanza kuomba kura.”

It has left a very devastating environment as the fire seems to be taking longer than expected to put out while it’s still claiming more structures and homesteads.

It’s so discouraging that not even the Langata fire brigade responded fast enough to help put out the fire.
So far, casualities have not been identified as efforts to put out the fire are still being put to work.
