Four students suspected to be behind the Moi Girls School, Nairobi, dormitory fire that killed nine students are due to be arraigned in court today.

Police sources privy to the investigations into the incident, which has been termed an arson attack by acting Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i, said detectives had zeroed in on the four for prosecution.

The suspects, according to the source, had been taken to the scene of the fire as police pieced together information in a bid to reconstruct the events of the fateful Sunday morning.

“We started by grilling more than 15 of them, then nine, then five, and now we have four,” the source said.
