At least 32 people have died in the flooding in KZN. KwaZulu-Natal EMS spokesperson, Robert Mckenzie elaborates:
“Cooperative governance and disaster management teams are still busy coordinating the numbers to confirm the numbers and that will continue this morning as the disaster management team access the areas that are affected, and find out who is missing and who’s been unaccounted, to find out exactly how many people have lost their lives in this tragedy.”
