Shack fire kills mother, children

A young mother and her two children, aged three and one, died in a fire which destroyed the shack they were living in.

The fire occurred in Phokeng, Thabong, on Sunday (10/03).

It is alleged that Makhabe Mosweu (35), her husband, Makonyane Nthako, and their children, Palesa and Bokamoso, were asleep in their home when the shack caught fire at about 00:45.

Makonyane managed to escape the fire, but his wife and children were killed. He was taken to the Bongani Hospital with serious burn wounds.

“The shack burned out completely, destroying everything inside. The investigation into the cause of the fire is still underway. No foul play is suspected, and an inquest docket has been opened,” says Capt. Malebo Khosana, police spokesperson.

The Thabong SAPS Commander, Brig. Cynthia Molale, says the community must be cautious about what they use to light fires for warmth, cooking or light, such as paraffin or candles. Smoking cigarettes indoors can also pose a risk.
