Mystery of 16-year-old Kiifi Student Who Perished in Dormitory Fire

Revelations have surfaced concerning the tragic death of a 16-year-old Form Two student at Godoma Boys’ Secondary School in Kilifi County, who perished while trapped amidst a devastating blaze inside the dormitory where he was asleep.

The incident unfolded during a concerning period of heightened unrest in local schools as reports of arson attacks spread across seven secondary schools in Ganze sub-county, all transpiring within the initial 12 days of October.

The late Fadhil Hassan, a diligent and gifted footballer, chose to remain inside the dormitory while his peers left for their morning preps, only for disaster to strike around 4:00 am as flames engulfed the premises.

It has now come to light that the ill-fated Kifaru dormitory, where the young teenager met his unfortunate end, was locked during the fire outbreak, raising suspicions of potential foul play. With the dormitory engulfed in flames, there was no chance of rescue, and distress calls were futile.

Hassan’s family has been left with numerous questions, desperately seeking answers and justice for their beloved kin. They are perplexed by why neither the teacher on duty, the dorm master, other teachers, the school guard, nor fellow students promptly responded to extinguish the fire or salvage the belongings of other students. The family also raises concerns about the barred windows in the dormitory, which appears to be in violation of the law.

Mshahali Hassan, Fadhil’s father and a Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) staff, has raised suspicions of misconduct and is calling for the school administration to be held accountable for the death of their second-born son. They have reported the case to Bamba Police Station (OB/3/9/10/2023).

“We want to know why they kept quiet and hid the matter from us until they took the body to the mortuary; my son died a very painful death, and we demand answers from the school administration,” stated Hassan during a press conference at his residence in Kizingo, Mombasa.

Fadhil was laid to rest following afternoon prayers at Masjid Rahma, and his final resting place is the Jomvu Kuu Muslim Cemetery. His mother, Swabra Hassan, raised questions about the handling of her son’s body, stating that it was taken to Kilifi Hospital mortuary against Muslim traditions.

Eight students arrested in connection with the fire incident remain in detention at Bamba Police Station, facing murder charges as investigations continue. Kilifi County Commissioner Josephat Biwott is leading efforts to determine the circumstances that led to the boy’s presence inside the locked dormitory.

The county commissioner also noted a recent surge in unrest in local schools, particularly Ganze, which has experienced repeated strikes, leading to ongoing investigations to understand the sudden increase in student protests in the region.
