Popular Kenyan member of Parliament (MP) is in distress after his vehicle bursted into flame.
Soy lawmaker Caleb Kositany is counting losses after his political campaign vehicle burst into flames at Langas, Kapseret, Uasin Gishu county.
The Saturday, January 22, incident saw Kositany’s vehicle complete with the public address system reduced to ashes.
Speaking to TUKO.co.ke, Kositany dismissed claims that his political competitors were behind the incident, clarifying that it was accidental.
“It was an accident,” he responded to a text message.
The United Democratic Alliance politician further explained the fire was caused by a faulty generator.
“My public address vehicle caught fire today, due to a faulty generator. Everybody is safe. Thanks to the Eldoret airport fire brigade and Uasin Gishu county fire department. We thank God,” he tweeted later on.
Witnesses said the generator fell from the roof of the vehicle thus causing the fire.
In late December 2021, the Modern Coast bus caught fire after its rear wheels went over a petrol spill from cars involved in an accident on Chavakali-Kapsabet road.
The company said the bus had left Mumias for Mombasa when the unfortunate incident that left the bus in flames happened.
