Woman, two children burnt to death in suspected arson attack



A 27-year-old woman and her two daughters, aged 5 and 2, have been confirmed dead after their house was set ablaze by unknown individuals in Nyunzu market, Makueni County.

Faith Mang’eli and her children were among five occupants of the house situated on the Makindu-Wote road.

The other two occupants, Ms. Mang’eli’s 49-year-old mother Regina Mueni and 75-year-old grandmother Monica Matolo, sustained serious burns and are presently receiving treatment at the Makueni Referral Hospital.

According to Makueni sub-county Police Commander Timothy Maina, the fire could have been started using petrol since “the room had a strong petrol smell.”

Bodies of the deceased have since been transferred to the Makueni Referral Hospital mortuary as investigations continue.
