Kuboshwe owesilisa ngokuqubuka komlilo oyingozi e-Marshalltown owadlula nemiphefumulo yabantu abangu-76 ngoNcwaba nyakenye.

I-Scrolla.Africa siyakuqonda ukuthi umsolwa oneminyaka engu-29, elingadalulwanga igama lakhe uzivumele yena ngokuqala umlilo ngesikhathi ethula ubufakazi kwiKhomishini Yophenyo.

Lo mlilo ube sematheni ezindabeni zomhlaba wonke ngesigameko esichazwe njengesiyingozi kunazo zonke esike senzeka edolobheni laseGoli.

Isishoshovu samalungelo abantu u-Andy Chinnah utshele i-Scrolla.Africa ukuthi umlilo omkhulu wadalwa yingxabano phakathi komsolwa nomngani wakhe.

Ingxabano yabhebhetheka yaba nkulu kanti umsolwa usolwa ngokushaya umngani wakhe aze ashone.

“Ukufihla ubufakazi becala lokubulala, umsolwa waya egaraji likaphethiloli eliseduze eyothenga uphethiloli, wabuya wokhela isidumbu, waphuma ebhilidini.

“Ngemuva kwemizuzu embalwa emi ngaphandle, waqaphela ukuthi umlilo awudalile ususabalele kuso sonke isakhiwo,” kusho uChinnah.

“Umuntu wokuqala ambona ezama ukusindisa impilo yakhe ngowesifazane owaphosa ingane yakhe isuka ebhilidini wabe esegxuma naye ebhilidini ebelisha.”

Umama wasinda kodwa asikwazi ukuqinisekisa ukuthi ngabe ingane yakhe yasinda yini. Okhulumela amaphoyisa esifundazweni sase-Gauteng uColonel Dimakatso Nevhuhulwi ukuqinisekisile ukuboshwa komsolwa esitatimendeni esifushane esikhishwe ngoLwesibili ebusuku.

“Kulindeleke ukuthi avele enkantolo yaseGoli maduze ngamacala okushisa, elokubulala abangu-76 nangu-120 okuzama ukubulala.”

Kwabashonile, abantu abangu-42 basagcinwe emakhazeni esibhedlela iChris Hani Baragwanath, e-Soweto.

Babalelwa ku-200 abasindile abanikezwe izindawo zokukhosela zesikhashana e-Denver kwathi bonke abokufika bayiswa eLindela Repatriation Centre e-Krugersdorp lapho besohlelweni lokubuyiselwa emazweni abo.
