Three family members from Bulawayo’s Morningside suburb were on Wednesday night burnt to death after their house was gutted by fire around 9 pm.
The Chronicle reports that a 55-year-old Prisca Mushore who was the mother of 2015 Miss Tourism Bulawayo pageant winner Nadia Gori, and her grandchildren Stacey Mushore (13) and Brendon Moyo (9) were burnt beyond recognition while property worth thousands of dollars were reduced to ashes.
The fire was reportedly caused by an electrical fault.
The accident was confirmed by the family’s spokesperson Mr Thabani Moyo who said they arrived at the scene too late. He said:
None of us was here to witness what really transpired. We received a phone call from one of our nephews based in Harare telling us that there was fire in the house after being contacted by the police. We rushed here and by the time we arrived, the roof had collapsed and my sister, my nephew and my niece who lived in the house had been killed in the fire and property burnt to ashes.
