Perspective: Mobile phone explodes, kills herdsman in Kiruhura

Cell Phones Explode

It is unusual for devices like cellphones to explode. We have heard of incidences relating to fires from such devices.

Bike Manifold

Based on the report in this case a hot bike manifold could have played a role in this fire from the phone … which has led to the reported explosion of said fire caused by phone that killed the herdsman.

Lithium Battery

Reports are sketchy about that boat docked with 34 persons sleeping under the deck who were all killed in a mysterious fire that engulfed the boat. Initially it was believed that the fire may have been started in the engine room.

Was a Cellphone Battery the cause?

Further findings have proven otherwise. It is now believed that a cellphone could have been caused by a cellphone battery plugged in and likely being charged?

Investigating continues into the boat fire.


We regret this mishap … it should be a reminder to us all that we cannot take such devices for granted. They look small but can cause huge damage. Unbelievable, but true.
