Two people have died  while another sustained slight injuries at a Kisii county quarry after a huge rock they were working  on  entrapped them on Monday Morning.

The incident happened at  a Nyamonema quarry ,an  intersection of Bobasi,Nyaribari Chache and Bonchari constituencies   which had been on the spot over the safety of workers and area residents.

According to the area residents interviewed said the three had reported for duty and set out to excavate the rocks for  ballast  when the  boulder fell on them. One of them managed to escape with some injuries and raised the alarm.

The residents  sought  the services of a  bull -dosser from the nearby quarry and managed to retrieve the  bodies jointly with the county government machinery.

They added that  working at the quarries had proved risky not only to the workers   but  also to the ordinary people due to  challenges of blasting and dust.

“The work at the quarries  has been  a risk  not only to workers to the large community therefore  we call upon the government to ensure the quarrying activity is  made safe,” Edward Okenye said

Kisii south sub county deputy  county commissioner,Kipkoech Kigen stopped any further   excavation activity at the ill-fated quarry until further notice.

He said a multi-agency team will inspect the area with a view to identifying quarries that were dangerous  and  give the way forward.

Tom Togo,Kisii county environment officer said there was an urgent need for the amateur and unlicensed  quarrying being conducted on private  land to be coordinated and  formalized  to avoid loss of human lives.

Police removed the bodies to Kisii Teaching and Referral hospital mortuary  pending  investigations.
