The sombre mood has engulfed the residents of Mbale town in Vihiga county after a mortuary that was under construction collapsed where several workers at the construction site were milled into the situation.
According to the reports shared by Oscar Mandela who was at the scene, two people are believed to have suffered critical injuries in the melee that trapped several workers after the morgue collapsed.
"Happening right now at mbale, a news mortuary collapse accidentally... Injuring two people" Oscar Mandela shared the pictures.
A section of residents poured their blames at the Vihiga county governor Hon Otichillo for hiring an alleged rogue team of contractors who couldn't be held responsible for the collapse of the morgue while others have defended the county boss by casting the blames to the contractors.
In the video that was recorded during the live event of the collapse, the injured workers couldn't be taken to the hospital on time since there was no ambulance that could reinstate them to be taken to hospital.
Below is the Facebook link of the live video that was taken three hours ago.
