Bosso do­nates to be­reaved fam­ily

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Bianca Mlilo

HIGH­LANDERS Foot­ball Club has do­nated gro­ceries to a Bu­l­awayo fam­ily that lost a granny and her grand­daugh­ter in a freak ac­ci­dent on Fri­day.

Sineta Agnes Ncube (71) and her 13-year-old grand­daugh­ter, Loretta Ncube were struck by a trailer that dis­en­gaged from a South Africareg­is­tered Toy­ota Quan­tum just af­ter cross­ing Nketa Drive on their way home from Mpopoma high-den­sity sub­urb. The trailer dis­mem­bered them, send­ing some body parts fly­ing onto the tar­mac. Gogo Ncube was de­cap­i­tated.

High­landers tech­ni­cal ad­vi­sor Cos­mas Zulu and wel­fare man­ager Vezi Gama Dlodlo vis­ited the be­reaved fam­ily in Mabuth­weni on Sun­day where they do­nated the gro­ceries.

The ham­per com­prised Ma­zoe orange crush, maize-meal, cook­ing oil, cof­fee cream­ers, tea leaves, bread, peanut but­ter, jam, sugar, salt, soap and toi­let pa­per. “The money we used to buy all this food came from the tech­ni­cal staff and the play­ers be­cause we’re part of the Bu­l­awayo fam­ily. This is where our sup­port­ers come from and we feel that the fam­ily is part of the High­landers fam­ily and we need to help,” said Zulu.

“We, the tech­ni­cal staff, board, ex­ec­u­tive and the whole High­landers fam­ily are touched, we can also feel the pain the fam­ily is go­ing through.”

Phillip Ndlovu, un­cle to the de­ceased said the fam­ily was still in shock and could not rule out black magic in the pair’s deaths. “Into yakhona mina in­geth­usile, ayingiphathanga kuhle (I find this in­ci­dent scary, it’s un­set­tling). When I heard of my nieces’ deaths it felt like a dream. I’m very hurt, the death of two peo­ple at the same time, with one corpse head­less is a hard blow,” said Ndlovu.

Loretta was a Form One pupil at Njube High School. — @Bian­caMlilo
