          condolences to their families The question remains, were they well equipped in terms of machinery? Do we have an aerial support?

                Sad indeed.An investigation into the course of death should be carried out.It could be due to lack of proper equipment and support from the govt. The Aberdare forest has had enormous fires raging for years and their root course have never been unearthed.The govt owe Kenyans answers into this

                    Fire fighters should be deployed to curb this disaster. Rip to the officers who died while saving the earth.
