A man who claims to have been the Bank of Africa employee’s neighbour shared with netizens a brief report of just what exactly led to Korir’s death.
Through his Twitter account, Ambetsa, his nametag on the platform, stated that they heard screams and a loud car alarm within their Estate at around 8:30 in the morning.
As one of the first responders, he says that they found the car already on fire with heavy smoke coming from the windscreen, adding that by the time they managed to put it out, Korir, who is stationed at the Westlands branch of the bank, had already been burnt to death.
Police also confirmed they received an emergency call by guards and management of Maimahiu Court and informed there was a car on fire at about 8.30 a.m this morning.
They then called firemen to the scene, who after containing the fire established the man’s identity and his house.
Buruburu police boss Adamson Bungei said they are yet to establish the cause of the fire, adding that preliminary analysis of the wreckage showed only the inner part of the Subaru was damaged killing the man who was seated in the driver’s seat.
Shocked neighbours milled around the car before it was removed to the local police station and Korir’s body taken to the mortuary.
