Political scientist Mutahi Ngunyi is counting losses after his Runda mansion was burnt in a mysterious fire last night.
The fire, which he says started at 1:45am consumed the large house. He says he has owned it for the last 27 years.
The cause of the fire was not immediately established. Prof Ngunyi, who is a State House consultant and runs the popular YouTube channel Fifth Estate sees a political hand in the incident:
Itumbi is a social media publicist for United Democratic Alliance, a political party allied to Deputy President William Ruto. Last night, he was among the first people to break news about the fire online.
Neither police nor the Nairobi Metropolitan Services have commented about the incident.
