They said Mukyala had locked the gate to her house before she went to Napier market. They said they only noticed when the fire had already burnt most of the house.

Asuman Mwidu, a resident in the area said the gate was locked with strong padlocks, and by the time they succeeded in accessing the fire scene, the fire had erased everything, and the house ceiling had collapsed.

Esther Nakagolo, another resident said it was hard for them to notice the fire during its initial stages and that they only notified police when the raging flames and smoke billowed.

Kiira regional police spokesperson, James Mubi said the police’s fire brigade was unable to save the children since they were notified late.
