A family in Bungoma county is mourning their loved one who was crushed to death at a paper rolling factory formerly known as Pan Paper. The family strongly accuses the company's management of not being forthcoming with the details of his death while on duty.
The deceased, a 64-year-old man, reported to work as usual. He didn't know that day would be the last time he was together with his family. News of his tragic end started to filter through at around 7:30 am, 2 hours after he reported to work.
One of the co-workers who saw him before his final moments, narrated the ordeal with tears all over his face. His wife was left grieving in pain saying that the man was the family's breadwinner and she will find it hard to bear his loss.
Leaders from the region have urged the county government to look into the matter. They have requested the factory to take care of the deceased's funeral expenses and send off. However, investigations have started to identify the root cause of the matter.
