  |   Sanews

Fadzi Manono fears he will never be able to bury his younger brother Witness, whose body lies deep inside a dangerous old mine in Witbank, Mpumalanga, GroundUp reported.

Witness Manono, who was an informal gold miner, was reported dead in April. He was 30 years old. Another miner told Fadzi Manono that his brother had collapsed underground in the old mine due to lack of air. The other miner had been trying to help Witness when he fell down and took his last breath.

Manono hoped the man who had helped his brother would help him get Witness’s body out. But he too died underground, according to other miners, electrocuted inside the mine.
