The petrol tanker explodes near Argwings Kodhek High School in Gem killing at least 13 people. The thirteen are said to have been siphoning petrol from the tanker that was involved in an accident.
The victims were siphoning petrol from the tanker shortly after it was engaged in an accident with a vehicle transporting milk from the opposite direction when it burst, in what looks to be a repeat tragedy from which Kenyans have refused to learn.
According to Gem OCPD Moses Chacha, 13 people were killed and 11 injured at Malanga on the Kisumu-Busia Rd after an overturned petrol tanker they were retrieving fuel from exploded.
The injured were transferred to Gem Siaya county’s Yala sub county hospital.
With the support of a fire engine from Busia County, OCPD Chacha reports they were able to put out the fire.
