Reports indicate that the students claimed they were fatigued and needed a break, before going ahead and setting the dormitory on fire.

The dormitory is said to hold at least 500 students. It had four wings accommodating 178 of 400 students.

All the students escaped unhurt.

Siaya County Director of Education Nelson Sifuna revealed that some people who were suspects in the arson attack had been roaming around the dormitory the same time it went up in flames.
