    The menace of kerosene explosion is too common these days Government should do something to address the matter. It appears the tankers used to move petrol from one point to another are the same used to carry kerosene and that the petrol is not thoroughly flushed or washed out before conveying kerosene hence these incidents.
    Since we are told that kerosene is colorless like water, perhaps it will help if people carry transparent plastic bottles for use in buying small quantity of kerosene first, just to ensure that what is sold is colorless, before any large quantity of the stuff is purchased. Our lawmakers should impose sanctions to ensure that careless handling of the fuel by sellers attract heavy punishment, including compensation paid to victims of kerosene explosion and to their families. Very sad.
    RIP to the dead.
