Machakos fire brigade responded to the incident but it was too late. The vehicle had been consumed by the inferno.

The incident happened at his residence in Miwani estate, Machakos town.

It occurred days after Sadja publicly announced that he had decamped from his party's leader and Machakos governor candidate Nzioka Waita's camp and threw his political support behind Wiper's Wavinya Ndeti.

Sadja earlier on Thursday before the incident held a presser to affirm that he was still the party's secretary general.

He trashed claims by certain individuals that he had been suspended from the position by the party's leadership for supporting Ndeti.
