The Mthembu family from No. 36-14th Ave Richard Baloyi street Alexandra, is appealing to good Samaritans who can help with clothes, food, necessities following a fire that engulfed their two shacks while damaging their neighbours’ windows on Saturday night.
One of the victim Gugulethu Mthembu (23) says there is no one working in their family, and any donation is welcome. Saying this will severely affect her 1 week new-born baby. Preliminary investigations suggest an electric stove fault may have caused the fire on Sunday morning leaving three people homeless. Meanwhile ward 116 councilor Vonani Marema visited the family and promised to get help from disaster management services.
