Polokwane - Limpopo mother Marlyne Mabunda says her teenage son was among “the three” people who died after a generator ran out of diesel at Letaba Hospital.
Mabunda’s claim further deepened the mystery over the number of people who died as a result of last Wednesday’s blackout at the public hospital near Tzaneen.
A grieving Mabunda fought hard to hold back her tears on Wednesday when she narrated the story of her 17-year-old son Ntshuxeko Ngobeni.
Speaking to The Star from her home in Nkambako village, Mabunda insisted that Ntshuxeko’s condition deteriorated after the power cut. She said her son was in the same intensive care unit where two other people died.
