Sonko's Team takes action after Lang'ata Fire Tragedy

Four people were killed in the fire that left thousands homeless.

The Deputy Director Fire Rescue and Disaster Management Brian Kisali has been sent on compulsory leave over the poor response to the fire.

In a letter seen by Pulselive.co.ke, Nairobi Ag. County Secretary Leboo Ole Morintat wrote to Kisali instructing him to proceed on compulsory leave with immediate effect until he is recalled to office.

"Reports reaching this office indicate that you did not carry out your duties and responsibilities as required of you as the officer in charge of Fire and Rescue Services. You were aware that a fire broke out at Langata Southlands on 28th January 2018 evening and your team lacked direction and coordination resulting in deaths and loss of property due to mismanagement of the fire disaster," the letter read in part.

Speaking exclusively to Pulselive.co.ke, Richard Bosire, a member of Sonko's Communication Team confirmed Kisali has been sent on compulsory leave as investigations are conducted into the conduct of Nairobi's County Chief Fire Officer.

According to the County Government, an employee who willfully neglects to perform any work which it was his duty to perform is liable to be dismissed from service.

Kisali has been further directed to show cause why action should not be taken against him in 14 days.
