Two men die in their sleep in Nairobi home

27 June 2016, 18:18 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Two men died in their sleep after warming themselves with a jiko in Nairobi's Karen estate.

The two were found dead in the morning after they used the charcoal burner to warm themselves in the ongoing cold season.

The Karen area is usually surrounded by a large number of trees thus the increased cold.

" We found two men dead in the morning. Investigations show that they were warming themselves with the jiko and suffered from Carbon-monoxide poisoning," Nairobi Police boss Japheth Koome told News24.

The bodies were transferred to the Nairobi City Mortuary.

He warned Kenyans to be wary of using charcoal burners to warm themselves saying it will lead to more deaths.

" It is imperative that we be careful to avoid more deaths," he added.

In February, sister to late singer Angela Chibalonza Mary Ruinga died in her home in Embakasi after also using a charcoal burner to warm herself then falling asleep.
