A 45-year-old woman died Wednesday night in Mwanzo estate in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County after allegedly inhaling smoke produced by a refrigerator which exploded in her house.
Reports indicate that her female neighbour tried to help after she had her distress calls.
However, she explained that she decided to call for more help after the Njoki’s door proved too hard to break, but other neighbours were not responding.
“We heard her screaming, saying: ‘Majirani nisaidieni. Tunakufa’ (please help, we are dying). When we looked through our windows, we saw black smoke emanating from her house. We proceeded to her house, and we could see her directing spotlight rays at us,.
“Since we couldn’t manage to break down her door, we knocked on other neighbours’ doors, but none opened them to us. By the time help was coming, she had already lost her life,” the neighbour disclosed.
