Kirinyaga: Woman Found Dead In Her Bed After Fire Guts Home

In the Riandira neighborhood of Kirinyaga County, a 57-year-old woman perished Monday night after a fire destroyed her home.

According to Wilson Koskei, the Mwea-west sub-county police commander, villagers put out the fire at 10 p.m. on Monday and that is when Dorcas Wangeci’s body was found.

Residents in the area, led by Abraham Mwangi, claimed that the lack of nearby water made it difficult to quickly extinguish the large fire.

Residents who believe it was strange that the woman’s death was found in her bed and that two gas cylinders discovered after the fire was put out had not exploded are now calling for an investigation into the incident.

Despite the fact that residents believe the incident to be an arson, Mwea police chief Wilson Koskei stated police had started an inquiry.

The deceased’s remains was sent to the Kibugi funeral home in Kutus in order to await a postmortem.
