"We were busy working before we heard the ground moving. I don't know what happened because i just found myself trying to breath after soil fell on me. I'm lucky to be alive but at the same time, I'm worried because most of my colleagues are still buried alive and Trapped inside. I hope they will all be found alive and well because I can also see their families stressed over here. No one deserves to die like this, we as the community are praying for them", he said.

Confirming this incident, Siaya police boss claimed that they have already rescued 2 of the victims who he claimed were found safe and sound.

"We have already rescued a number of the victims. I heard that they were 10 in number and I'm trying as hard as I can to help the remaining 8. We are working hard because we know that they can't breath below the ground. We hope we'll get them out alive", he said.
