Family Watches In Horror As House CRUMBLES To The Ground

Luckily, no one was injured. House owner Simangele Nxumalo (51) told Daily Sun it happened during the day while her son and his friends were outside.

“My son was sitting with his friend in the shade.

“They said they suddenly heard a loud noise and then there was dust everywhere,” she said.

Simangele said they stood back and watched as the whole house crumbled to the ground.

She said her house had terrible cracks that she had reported to the councillor.

“These two-roomed houses are old. It started to show cracks five years ago.

“Last year’s storm made it worse, and I reported to the councillor hoping that he would get it renovated like the other houses.

“He came to see the house, but did not return – not until it collapsed.”

She said on the day it collapsed, she had called him and he arrived with a person from the municipality’s disaster management team, who took pictures of the house.

“I have not heard anything since he left,” Simangele said.

“I do not even know where I am going to put my groceries.

“My family and I will have a bleak Christmas this year,” she said.

She is hoping the council takes swift action.
