Fire  razes dormitories at Teremi Boys High  School

Two dormitories at Teremi Boys High  School in Kabuchai Constituency , Bungoma  County were on Friday burned to ashes by a fire whose cause is yet to be established.

The school community and preliminary investigations allege an electric fault caused the inferno. The dorms housed 300 students

Speaking to the press, the Principal  Benard Wamanga confirmed that the incident occurred at around  6pm days after the school reopened for second term.

Wamanga said all the 300 students lost everything as firefighters from the County government and Nzoia Sugar Company arrived after the inferno had consumed everything.

Wamanga however urged parents and guardians to stop panicking as a roll call of all students had been conducted and none was missing.  “All students were in class for their evening preps when the incident happened,” he confirmed.

The principal appealed for well wishers and stakeholders to render a helping hand urgently to aid in putting up another dormitory to house the affected students.

 

Reacting to the incident,  Bokoli  MCA  Jack Kawa called on the county government to reinforce  the fire department to make  it  more efficient  in responding to fire disasters.
