President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday condoled with the families of the 7 Moi Girls’ students who lost their lives in the 2 Am inferno.
One of the school dormitories is said to have caught fire but the cause is still unknown. 51 girls were rushed to Nairobi Hospital and others transferred to the Kenyatta National Hospital burns unit.
2 of the form one students are said to be in critical condition.
In his statement, the President wished the students a quick recovery.
”I was deeply saddened and pained by news of last night’s fire at Moi Girls’ School, Nairobi.
The young women touched by this tragedy are the best of us: diligent, committed to learning, and prepared to make a difference in the life of the country they love. I mourn with the families who have lost loved ones, and I pray that those injured will recover quickly and fully.
The families affected, as well as the school and all who wish it well, can be sure that we will investigate the matter fully, and act appropriately, so that this sort of tragedy doesn’t recur. We need to protect our sons and daughters, and we will.
I pray that the departed will rest in eternal peace; and I pray that all those touched by this tragedy will find consolation and encouragement in God’s grace.”
