‘Everything was burnt here’: Langa rebuilds after hundreds lose homes
Catastrophic blaze occurred late on Saturday and followed another fire a few hours earlier that killed one man
Anelisa Nenete, 31, was in the Eastern Cape when she received the call nobody wants to get: “Your home has burnt down.”
She is one of nearly 800 inhabitants in Langa, Cape Town, who will remember this Easter weekend as the one when they lost everything they owned.
“We just had the clothes we were wearing. We lost our children’s certificates, ID documents, everything was burnt here. We are five in a house.”..
