Jubilee parliamentary candidate’s house burnt under mysterious circumstances.

The home of Ruiru Town Parliamentary candidate on a Jubilee Party ticket, Simon Ng'ang'a King'ara was on Monday morning razed by a mysterious fire, destroying household items worth millions of shillings.

The house at Garden Estate, Roysambu Constituency in Nairobi, is suspected to have been torched by unknown people in what the politician attributed to attempts to eliminate him because of his victory in the Jubilee primaries.

Speaking to the press moments after the arson, King’ara pointed an accusing finger to his opponents in the race, terming the act as a ploy to suppress his political ambitions.

He added that he has been receiving death threats, with unknown people severally trailing him on various occasions. He said that he has made several reports to the police on the issue, notwithstanding the various occasions he has bumped into some youth idling near his compound in some saloon cars.

“I have been receiving threats by unknown people and at times I have noticed people trailing my car on different occasions. Last Saturday, the same people attempted to burn my house but the fire was spotted in good time and contained before it could spread,” he said.

“Unfortunately, the assailants succeeded in their mission this morning at around 10am. Nobody was at home by then and I was alerted by neighbours who noticed fire from my compound,” King’ara added.

King’ara said that both the KPLC staff and the electrician who installed his security alarm systems ruled out electrical fault as the cause of the fire.

“I have been ignoring all these indicators and taking them lightly, but if the recent chronological of events is anything to go by, then I believe that my life and that of my family is in great danger,” said a rather worried and disturbed King’ara.

He therefore called on the authorities to take his concerns seriously and accord him and his family, the security they deserved.

King’ara appealed for a peaceful electioneering period for the remaining part of the campaigns, noting that there was no sense for any leader to gain leadership through shedding of innocent blood.
