A Nandi man was on Monday, buried alive while digging a pit latrine at Jean Marie Secondary school.

The 30 year old who was identified as Josephat was among the three people contracted to dig the pit at the school.

Josephat was trapped after the walls of the pit which is 30 feet deep collapsed while he was inside at around 2:00 pm.
