Tobiko: JKIA fire an accident

12 February 2014, 17:54 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Director of Public Prosecutions DPP Keriako Tobiko has classified the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport JKIA fire as accidental and closed any criminal proceedings against would be perpetrators.

Tobiko says that upon findings by his office, there was no reason whatsoever to term the fire criminal or a terrorist act.

He thus directed the case be closed and classified as accidental.

The fire razed down the whole of the international arrivals section at the facility, causing delays and cancellations from airlines and losses said to be in the hundreds of millions of shillings.

Tobiko said that after consultation with the Kenya Police, the Criminal Investigations Department CID and his office, there was no evidence to support claims that the fire might have been criminally instigated.

" We find no reason to suggest that the fire might have been caused by a criminal act and thus choose to view the case as closed.

There were theories that the fire might have been caused  by terror groups but the government had insisted that it was caused by an electrical fault.

" The fire has been caused by an electrical fault and I would like to urge the public to avoid any other stories that may cause panic, Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo said in the aftermath of the fire.
