A company that sold an electric blanket worth Ksh 250,000 to Gatundu South Member of Parliament, Moses Kuria, has issued a detailed statement following the unfortunate severe burning incident.
In the statement dated Thursday, October 7, the company first apologised to the lawmaker following the ordeal that forced him to undergo surgery.
According to the company, Moses Kuria purchased the electric blanket through a friend in one of their outlets in Nairobi.
Martin Mulwa, one of the researchers from the company, noted that the company sells high-quality products that have passed the quality mark as prescribed by the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS).
“We regret the unfortunate incident that occurred. It is not our desire to sell products that expose the users to any form of danger. The product was purchased by one of Moses Kuria’s friends and we did not know that he had pre-existing health conditions,” their statement read in part.
The company went ahead to attach a copy of their certificate indicating that they have the approval to sell electric blanket products.
