Young man in Waithaka Dagoretti Kenya sets former lover’s house on fire for breaking up with him



A man in Waithaka, Dagoretti in Nairobi has been charged for arson after his former lover broke up with him.

The alleged young man identified as Patrick Kirmi was accused of setting Hanna Wambui Kinyanju’s Sh100k Bungalow on fire following a bitter breakup with her.

Reports claimed he was seen going into the apartment by the praying eyes of the unnoticed neighbours before setting it on fire.

Wambui told the court that on a fateful day, she was called and informed her house in Dagoretti was up in flames. She rushed from Uthiru to the place only to find everything reduced to ashes.

Her tenant, who joined her minutes later, was reduced to tears after watching all her property and documents vanish in the fire.

Neighbours insisted that it was Kirimi, a private security guard, who was behind the fire.

The accused however denied the charges before Senior Principal magistrate Derrick Kutto of the Kibera Law Courts.
