“Bungoma West detectives are holding a form two suspect of Arson who was captured on cctv torching one of the dormitories at Friends School Namwela Boys High.
The retrieved footages revealed how the 18-year-old student sprinkled suspected petrol at one corner of the dormitory last night, before he beetled off through a window after dropping a lighter.
The fire which spread fast throughout the dormitory flamed up leaving nothing to salvage. Luckily, none of the students was injured in the 8pm incident. ” Said DCI
