Nandwa survives Nakumatt inferno, Serry missing
The unfortunate Nakumatt inferno this past Wednesday touched the Soccer fraternity, as it did the nation as a whole in a big way.
Tusker FC coach James Nandwa was at Nakumatt Downtown shopping for his team together with his CEO Peter Serry.
As itís alleged, after a black out at the Supermarket (and other environs in the City of Nairobi), a return of power led the stand by generator to explode causing an immediate fire within the chain store and a stampede to the only outlet of the store on the ground floor.
Nandwa, together with other shoppers were caught up upstairs but somehow the former Sher Karuturi Coach managed to make way to an escape route from the upper floor to the outside before using a ladder to the outside.
However, reports reaching kenyafootball.com indicates that Serry, the current Tusker FC CEO Serry - a brother to Harambee Stars misfielder Osborne Monday, who was shopping with Nandwa in the premises, is believed to have been trapped in the premises while the fire spread and gutted down the entire chain store.
While its still early to conclude, the Soccer fraternity is fearful of the worst considering many Kenyans have already reported that their family members, as many as 47 (by Friday evening) may have been at the store and are still missing two days after the fire was contained.
Already rescuers have recovered 16 bodies that were huddled up in what was perceived to be an escape route that was sealed. The search for more bodies is expected to comtinue tomorrow.
Nandwa in the meantime is recuperating at City the MP Shah Hospital for minor injuries.
