According to the employee, Ngunyi and his family were at home when the midnight fire started and the police were alerted before they raised an alarm to the fire brigade who arrived late at the scene.
He further revealed that nobody in the Ngunyi family was hurt but unfortunately nothing was saved from the home of the analyst who has spent the last twenty-seven years in the residence.
"The family was around when the fire started past midnight but no one was hurt. Nothing was saved because the fire engines delayed," he stated.
