The tragedy happened Monday midday but the body was retried around 7pm.
The child drowned as he went to fetch water from the quarry which had not been in use for quite some time, thus becoming a deep cesspool.
Residents who spoke to IGIHE revealed that they had complained to local authorities urging them to earth-fill the abandoned open quarry that has been accumulating flowing water but nothing was done until the child drowned.
The executive secretary of Nkaka sector, Nsabimana Kazungu Alex said they are to summon the person who extracted stones from the quarry but failed to heed to the advice of refilling it.
“We sent a letter to the person who used to extract stones, instructing him to refill the quarry. We have decided to summon him to tell us why he neglected warnings, order him to fill it it at all cost and later follow up with insurance,” he promised.
