Student vandalises transformer, suffers burns
A form one student will have his right arm amputated after suffering serious burns when he and his three accomplices attempted to vandalise a power transformer in Kisii on Tuesday night. The unfortunate incident occurred at Ikenye, Keroka, at a transformer serving the Ikenye water supply. The young man is a form one student at Masimba Secondary School.
He is currently admitted at Kisii Level 5 hospital awaiting amputation of the hand before he is charged in court. One of the other two accomplices is a form three student at Mokorogoinwa Secondary School who is yet to report back to school, while the identity of the third person is yet to be established.
In another incident, a young man received burns when his attempts to vandalise a transformer at Masimba near Oyugis town turned awry. During the incident early this week, the jolt of electricity he received tore his clothes to shreds and burnt his body in several parts. He was treated in hospital and discharged. He appeared in the Oyugis court charged with preparing to commit a felony. He denied the charge and is currently in remand after failing to raise a bond of Shs.50,000.
