On 1st February, 2024 at around 11.30pm, a huge blast incident took place at an illegal LPG gas refilling point situated at Mradi area of Embakasi, Nairobi.

The LPG refilling site is rented by Derrick Kimathi (the prime suspect) and put under the management of one Stephen Kilonzo.

Arising from the blast, six fatalities have been recorded, and about 300 persons suffered different degrees of burns. Some were treated and discharged, while others are still admitted at various hospitals in serious conditions.

Several motor vehicles, business premises and residential houses were also destroyed by the harrowing inferno.

No wonder, he is being handled with kid gloves. Anyone else ata breakfast ya the following morning angekulia kiambu road

Genuine question, kisanga kama hii ikikutendekea what’s your next course of action. Juu mi siwezi ngojea kushikwa. Saa hii ningekuwa in the thickets of Congo forest. Kushikwa hii ni life sentence
