13 Killed As Church Roof Collapses In South Africa

13 people were killed when part of a Pentecostal Church building collapsed on Thursday night in Dlangubo in KwaZulu-Natal, authorities have confirmed.


This is thought to have been a result of perpetual rainfall in the northern part of the province, KwaZulu-Natal Emergency Medical Services spokesperson Robert McKenzie said.

According to Provincial police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbele, the area experienced a storm and heavy winds which are believed to have resulted in the incident.

Police were still at the scene and a total of 29 people have been transported to hospital, she told News24.

Provincial Disaster Management Centre officials were expected to accompany Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs MEC Nomusa Dube-Ncube to the site early on Friday to plan possible support for the bereaved families.
