Isiolo County Purchased a Faulty Fire Engine
A day after a fire has razed Isiolo market Malls and owners and residents bitterly complained about the lack of response from the county administration, the communications department released a statement lamenting about the sub-standard and faulty fire engine that the county showcased a week earlier. While the government did not say how it will help those affected by the fire or whether they will be assisted to restart their businesses, the department said that the fire engine which is the only one in the county could not do the job.
