Fifty families were left homeless after a fierce fire burnt down their homes in Duka Moja area in Ngoliba, Thika East Sub County on Saturday morning.

The fire started in one of the houses in a semi-permanent residential plot at around 8am, spreading so fast due to strong winds and its timber partitions, razing down all other houses to ashes.

Thika Town MP Alice Wambui Ng’ang’a has reported her main rival Eng. Patrick Wainaina Wa Jungle to the Thika police, accusing him of branding his name on street lighting poles erected under the national government.

While addressing the press at the Thika Police Headquarters on Friday, Alice said that the action by her competitor were meant to hoodwink the wananchi that he was the one behind the programme.
