Issued by the Office of the ANC EC Provincial Secretary
This morning the ANC EC leadership while in NMM to do organisational work woke up with sad news that one building in Ekuphumleni Old Age Home in Zwide caught fire last night. It is confirmed that 3 lives were lost. We would like to convey our message of condolences to the families that lost their loved ones.
We commend the rapid response by NMM fire department that saved the section that caught fire, only few rooms were affected. As the leadership we also commend the community members who woke up in that rainy weather to help the elderly, they were the first to arrive in the home.
Social Development and the municipality will work together and assist to bring normality to the home.
