The school’s Kizito dorm with a capacity of 100 beds went up in smoke, with the students’ clothes, shoes and other belongings worth millions.

This comes amid lengthy peace and calm after a series of school fires experienced in the country last year. The school administration has assured parents not to panic as all their sons are safe, and a probe has been launched to unravel the cause of the fire.
