Sunday Observer - - NEWS -

The res­i­dents of the Mat­sapha-Mobeni Es­tate whose flats were flooded by the storm claimed their fur­ni­ture was de­stroyed. A Nsi­bandze fam­ily at block 24 said all of their fur­ni­ture was de­stroyed by the rains as all the rooms were flooded. The fam­ily of four said they slept at their neigh­bour’s flat af­ter they were pro­vided a flat where they were only al­lowed to put their wet fur­ni­ture.

“We were told that we were not al­lowed to cook in the new house as the bill was still on the pre­vi­ous ten­ant,” the ten­ant said.

Mean­while an­other fam­ily that was found va­cat­ing their flats es­ti­mated that about E40 000 worth of fur­ni­ture was dam­aged by the wa­ter. The fam­ily was at block 28, and they said they were forced to drive at night to Ekudzeni as they had no other place to sleep. It was gath­ered that when it started rain­ing only one fam­ily mem­ber was home.

“I didn’t know that the roof had been blown away un­til my neigh­bour came knock­ing to check on me.” she said.
