The Ntlatseng family in Ipelegeng Township near Schweizer-Reneke in the North West have pleaded with the provincial government to assist them to bury their loved ones. 17 members of the family died in an accident over the weekend while another three have been admitted to a local hospital.
The driver of the taxi and his friend also died in the crash. The deceased were travelling in a minibus taxi, from Bloemhof, where they were attending a wedding anniversary party. Family spokesperson Lebogang Ntlatseng says they do not have sufficient funds to cover the costs of the funeral.
“As the family, we will like the government to assist us with funeral costs because we lost many family members and also we have not decided when are we going to bury them, so we will decide about it because we have been waiting for government to visit us first. We also still waiting for post mortem results.
