A family from Bulawayo has been dealt a terrible blow after five family members perished in a horrific accident that occured in South Africa over the weekend.

Six people died in the crash which occurred in Polokwane in the Limpopo Province. Of the six deceased, four are siblings from the Mkandla family from Bulawayo’s Entumbane suburb. The fifth family member is a grandchild who was only four years old.

The sixth victim and the only non-family member was a friend of one of the Mkandla siblings.

The Mkandla siblings were on their way to Bulawayo to visit their mom when the terrible accident occured. They were all travelling in a Toyota Corolla Quest vehicle which was owned by one of the siblings.  

The deceased have been identified as 

  • Nomasiko Mkandla (33) 
  • Mluleki Mkandla (30)
  • Thulani Mkandla (26)
  • Mthabisi Mkandla (22) 
  • Jayden Moabe (04) and  
  • Vusa Makukisi (age still to be ascertained)

Four-year-old Jayden was the son of Nomasiko while 22-year-old Mthabisi Mkandla was the last born in the family. Nomasiko is survived by another son who is in Grade 7. The other siblings did not have children.

The mother of the siblings, Mrs Nobuhle Mkandla (57), was understandably distraught over the tragic development. She was already a widow before the fateful accident robbed her of four of her six children. The other two children are in Zimbabwe.

Ms Nothando Ncube, Mrs Mkandla’s sister spoke on her sister’s behalf. She tearfully told the state-owned daily publication the Chronicle, 

“Sitshelwe ngamanzi mntanami. The children were coming from South Africa to visit their mother. From Jo’burg when they left they were communicating with their mother. It’s only around 7 pm when their mother sent Whatsapp messages for which she could not get responses. She spoke to those in Jo’burg who also said they were struggling to get in touch with them.” 

“We are yet to get the full details of what transpired but from what we are gathering three cars were involved. Their car was involved in a head-on collision and during the process, another car rammed the side of their car. They were trapped and emergency services in South Africa had to cut open the car to retrieve them. Three of them died on the spot while Thulani Mkandla, the car owner and the one who was driving when the accident happened, was thrown out of the car on impact and died in hospital. The grandson died in hospital as well.”

Ms Ncube also appealed for assistance from well-wishers saying that the family was ill-equipped to cope with the terrible calamity which had befallen it.

“We are appealing to those who can provide counselling services to help my sister. She is failing to cope with the situation. She is hypertensive as well and her condition is a great concern to us. We also appeal for food and financial help, and funeral parlours who can assist to bury our children,” she said.
