The incident took place today around 10am in Sata village, Karubungo cell, Gitoki sector.
It is said that a large stone brusquely fell on the man’s head and died immediately.
The executive secretary of Gitoki sector, Mushumba John has told IGIHE that the stone fell as the man was on daily mining activities.
“The deceased was a resident working with CMK Company extracting minerals in Karubungo cell. He was along with other colleagues at work when the accident happened,” he said.
“They usually employ methods to examine the mining site before extraction. The company is licensed to carry out mining activities. What happened is an accident because it happened in a place where he stood alone. His colleagues are safe,” added Mushumba.
Preparations to take the body to health facility for postmortem were underway by press time.
