RIP: Photos of Gatundu Pastor Who Died After Quarry Caved in Today

Residents of Wamwangi, Gatundu South were left in pain after a quarry owner and pastor who had employed more than 10 young men died after the quarry caved in as he was doing his daily inspection in the afternoon.

It is suspected that the soil had gotten weak since small explosives had been used in the morning to make it easy for the workers to dig the rocks.

Efforts by his employees to save him proved futile since by the time they managed to remove the rocks and soil, he had already died.

The young employees urged the government to give them jobs or provide them with proper equipment since it is risky working at the quarry. Most of them have life long injuries because the rocks keep falling on them from time to time.

Last year, they lost a co-worker after the quarry caved in. They stopped working for some time for fear of their security but later resumed due to financial difficulties.

Peter Gitau's body is currently lying at Gatundu Level 4 hospital mortuary. He died aged 38 years and left behind a wife and young children. Our sincere condolences to his family members and friends.
