Police in Nairobi are looking for a woman who allegedly torched more than 40 houses in Kibra on Sunday in a suspected case of a love triangle involving lesbians.
Capital News reported that the lady, believed to be a foreigner, started the fire that razed down over 40 houses in the area after her alleged lover cheated on her with another woman.
The woman accused of cheating allegedly suffered injuries during the incident and was taken to the hospital by her newfound lover.
Confirming the incident, area Chief Hilary Chumo said about 100 people were left homeless after the fire incident.
“The firefighters were not able to access the area due to lack of roads,” Chumo told Capital News.
Homosexuality is illegal in Kenya, with those found culpable liable to 14 years in prison.
In May, the High Court declined to decriminalize gay sex in Kenya.
