Catholic sisters abode razed

A training school for catholic nuns in Kisii County has been razed displacing scores of them.

The Franciscan Sisters Alumni, Genga Novitiate in Kisii South Sub County lost their libray, 10 classrooms, foodstuffs and personal effects among others in the inferno whose cause could not immediately be established.

Sister in charge Dorothy Akoth who was not in when the incident occurred   said there were no causalities.

The institution’s buildings had undergone renovation recently.

Kisii south OCPD   Evans Aunga said when the fire broke out, area residents rushed to fight it off with the help of area county disaster management and succeeded.

Aunga confirmed extensive damage caused by the fierce fire suspecting it to have been caused by an electric fault.

The affected sisters were transferred to a similar institution   at Asumbi in Homabay County as investigations commenced.
