As a Paramount Chief of Chirano Traditional Area and the Vice President of the Western North Regional House of Chiefs, I wish to extend my deepest condolences to the families of the lost precious souls and also to those who are seeking medical care a speedy recovery.
I and my elders are saddened and devastated by the heartbreaking incident that took away the lives of innocent people who are breadwinners within a wink.
I pray to the Almighty God to give the affected families the strength and mental fortitude to quell those painful times.
I would like to also use the opportunity to thank the Management of Kinross, Chirano Gold Mines Limited for their kind gesture to support the victims of the Apiate disaster with relief items.
I am, therefore, appealing to philanthropists, well-wishers to support the government as a matter of urgency to rebuild the devastated community.
