Breaking: The last call the family received from their daughters was that they were in Boksburg & burning

When a Kwazulu Natal family received a frantic call from two family members; saying they were in Boksburg and burning; they must have felt very confused because the news had not yet broken out; in order for them to understand what their daughters meant.

However; a few days later they were forced to send the women’s brother; to Johannesburg; in Gauteng; to look for his sisters; this after both did not arrive home for Christmas.

Mondli Mkhize; is desperate to find his two sisters; who the family suspects may have died in the Boksburg explosion. This after the family had last received a message from the women; on the eve of Christmas.

Mkhize left Kwazulu Natal for Gauteng; with just the clothes on his back; he is determined to find his sisters; who he says; are breadwinners back home.

The sisters are suspected to have been victims of the Boksburg tanker explosion; which has killed 35 people so far.

According to Mkhize; in his conversation with a local newspaper; the last scary call the family received from his sisters; informed them that they were in Boksburg and they were burning.

The explosion has led to the deaths of 11 health-care workers; from a nearby hospital; which was affected by the explosion that occurred near the hospital.

The explosion; which has become the most talked about incident on 24 December 2022; occurred following a tanker becoming stuck under a bridge; which led to the release of liquefied petroleum gas; that exploded into an inferno; that burned people alive.

Mkhize is desperate to find out if his sisters also perished in the fire; because the family has not heard from them since their last message.

Reports in the media have revealed that; five bodies were burned beyond recognition; leaving only DNA test results as an option to identify the bodies. This could help Mkhize confirm if those are his relatives.

Mkhize revealed that; he travelled by taxi with just the clothes on his back; to attend the mass memorial for the victims; after being instructed by his family; to do so.

Mkhize said; his sisters; had been on their way home to KwaZulu-Natal; when the incident happened.
The Gauteng Department of Social Development; have offered to assist Mkhize to find shelter; in order to remain in Gauteng; to look for his sisters.
