The family of 3 people who died in a fire in Bulawayo‘s morning side suburb during the burial of their loved, appealed to the first lady to help them rebuild their home which was destroyed by the fire that claimed the lives of a 57-year-old grandmother and her 2 grandchildren, The Chronicle reports.
At the burial ceremony of the victims, the family spokesperson said:
The structure that has been left has no roof, no ceiling, no bed, no chair, no cup, no teaspoon and so it must be reconstructed so that the children can have a home.
We are therefore appealing to those that can assist especially the First Family to help in reconstructing the house. We always see the First Lady helping others in society so we are appealing to her to extend that kind of help to us as well. I know that the First Lady is very responsive and she will do it.
Bulawayo Provincial Minister confirmed receiving the appeal and said she will pass it on to the First Lady.
