Man Buried Alive at Kitwe Mine
A 32-year-old man of Kitwe’s Kankonde area has been buried to death following a laterite mining operation that went wrong.
The man identified as Green Kapelelwa was in the company of four others at a mining quarry when the ground beneath him gave up on him burying alive.
Kapelelwa becomes the fourth person in Kitwe to be buried alive in similar circumstances in a month.
The deceased was on a shifting that fetches K30 per load of laterite for an individual.
