Government has managed to positively identify 23 out of 24 bodies retrieved at Battlefields mines.
Government is now working with relatives to make burial arrangements. Rescuers managed to retrieve 19 bodies by midnight after five others had been hoisted to the surface earlier on Saturday.
Eight people who were retrieved alive yesterday were taken to Kadoma General Hospital. Seven of them have since been discharged after assessment by doctors. The remaining survivor is reportedly in the intensive care unit due to the severity of the injuries and trauma he suffered while underground.
