Cape Town - Two little girls burnt to death after they were trapped inside their burning shack early on Tuesday morning.
Lithabo, 2, and Kwakhanya, 5, were fast asleep in their Philippi East home when the fire broke out.
Their mother, Vuyokazi Gcilitshane, managed to escape. She ran for help, screaming: “The children are inside.”
Gcilitshane was taken to hospital with burns, according to City of Cape Town fire chief Theo Layne.
Her neighbour, Douglas Gungqisa, was home on Tuesday morning to recount the horrifying night.
