Four Secondary school pupils and a caretaker from Le Pic School in Nairobi’s Riruta Satellite died on Sunday night after their dormitory caught fire. The children were trapped in the dorm whose windows have metal grills. According to Jacinta Achieng, the caretaker’s wife, Stephen Oluoch, the 23-year-old caretaker had received threatening letters from a section of the students for being too strict on them. Stephen was burnt beyond recognition in his own bathroom while the pupil’s are said to having died from choking.
