Maendeleo ya Wanawake offices razed down in Siaya

Property worth over Ksh 800,000 was destroyed Monday morning following a mysterious fire that gutted down Maendeleo Ya Wanawake organization offices in Siaya Town .

According to the organization’s Siaya County branch Chairperson, Mrs. Patricia Apoli, the morning fire was reported by some tenants who discovered it at around 5.30 am.

She told Citizen Digital that vital documents belonging to the women empowerment organisation were reduced to ashes in the inferno.

Mrs. Apoli revealed that the building is suspected to have been set on fire by a neighbor who was allegedly spotted around that area by the time of the incident.

She, however, stated that police have launched investigation to unearth the truth behind the genesis of the fire.

Women in Siaya County, led by ODM Alego/Usonga Women Secretary Mrs. Amelia Auma Owuor, condemned the incident, saying it is quite unfortunate.

“We suspect that this is a politically instigated case of arson and it is very unfair to destroy the property of such a hard working woman, we therefore call for speedy investigations into this issue,” she said.
