Family in agony as missing 3 year old boy found dead in soak away

A family has been thrown into agony upon discovery that their three year old son whom they thought was missing is actually dead. According to reports, the boy, identified as Waris, was found dead in the soak away pit

It was gathered that Waris was with his mother in their apartment before he went out to play however, moments later, his mother didn’t find him in the compound

Fear gripped the currently aggrieved mother as she raised alarm and her neighbors joined her in searching for the boy.

The child who went missing at about 3.30pm was not found until around 7pm when one of his slippers was found beside the cesspit. Neighbours brought a ladder and searched inside the pit where Waris’ body was found.

Though he was rushed to the hospital, sadly, he was pronounced dead on arrival

The father of the deceased who spoke on the said matter said the pit was opened because workers wanted to work on it.

He said: “His mother went to pick him in school and when they got home, his mother changed his clothes and he went out to play. They don’t normally open the cesspit, but yesterday (Wednesday) they wanted to work on it, so they opened it to bring out water that was inside.”
