There was a scare at Gacharage Village in Murang’a County after a mugumo tree fell and burst into flames.
The incident happened on Thursday, 10th June.
Local residents, who gathered at the place, could be heard asking themselves questions in a video on TV 47.
“Where is the fire coming from? This is very strange,” a man said.
Litkenya.com could not tell whether the fire was deliberately lit by some unknown person.
But the mugumo is considered sacred tree among the Agikuyu.
Whenever a mugumo tree falls, it is usually a sign of a looming major occurrence, bad omen or change of guard.
Agikuyu elders are now expected to conduct a ritual at the place.
Three months ago, another mugumo tree fell in Kabete, Kiambu County.
