Tragedy as man buried alive in Bondo

A 30-year-old man died on Saturday after a heap of sand drifted and buried him alive as he was harvesting sand at Wich-Lum beach in Bondo Sub-County.

According to Bondo Community Policing Committee chairman, Mr Juma Abuko, the deceased, Otieno Akali, was inside the sand mine when the walls collapsed and buried him, killing him instantly.

Abuko added that the heap of sand drifted so fast that Akali did not have an opportunity to escape.

The body of the deceased has been moved to Bondo Sub-County Hospital Mortuary to await a postmortem.

Mr Abuko urged sand harvesters in the area to take proper safety precautions to avert such tragedies.
