Prison wardens left homeless as fire razes their houses

24 November 2015, 21:35 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - A group of 36 prison wardens at King’ong'o GK prison in Nyeri have been left homeless following a night fire that gutted down their shelters.

The timber house units were razed down by a fire that started at around 2.00 am on Monday night, according to Officer in Charge of the facility Patrick Araduh.

Araduh said no injuries were recorded but property worth hundreds of thousands were reduced to ashes.

“The officers lost all their personal properties and documents. Nothing was salvaged in the inferno. We got assistance from Nyeri fire fighters who contained the situation,” Araduh reported.

He said the cause of the fire is yet to be established though investigations have kicked off.

He explained that the fire spread fast because the houses were wooden and due to gas cylinders that kept on bursting.

Araduh, however, appealed to well-wishers to assist the officers rebuild their lives as the facility plans to offer them temporary housing.

“The officers have families and they have lost everything. It is a hard situation but we are asking well-wishers to partner with us so they can rebuild their lives again,” said Araduh.

He said the prison is also planning to construct permanent houses for all warders in the correctional facility.
