There was grief and fear at Kiruruma Sand Mind in Nyakinoni Sub County after the sand mine buried alive another person 24 hours after its reopening
According a resident who preferred anonymity, the deceased is Hannington Turyamuhebwa a son to Rutagasha of Buhumuriro Cell in Nyakinoni Sub County.
The incident comes barely 24 hours after Kanungu District Security Committee reopened the sand mine and put in place a committee to enforce the strict guidelines that were put in place.
The sand mines were closed by the RDC for 2 weeks until yesterday after two of the miners were killed by the quarries.
Kanungu District Resident Commissioner Hajji Shaffiq Ssekandi Sengoba confirmed to our reporter that Turyamuhebwa had died in illegal sand mining.
Ssekandi added that it’s quite unfortunate that even after they have oriented these people on what to do, others have shamelessly disregarded their advice.
