Gauteng Premier David Makhura has released the names of the firefighters who died while trying to contain #JoburgFire. The names of fallen heroes are, Simphiwe Moropane, 28, Mduduzi Ndlovu, 40, and Khathutshelo Muedi, 37.
"I am more than ashamed when there are lives lost," says Makhura about the three firefighters who died at the burning Bank of Lisbon building, a government building in the Joburg CBD that has been ablaze for over 24 hours.
Makhura says he will be meeting with students from a residence across the road from Bank of Lisbon. He says he understands that some students were allowed to go back into the building, but their student accommodation is "not safe".
JUST IN: Students who stay at City Waldorf residence opposite the burning government building have been asked to vacate. Some students are still on their Pyjams. @TheStar_news @ReporterStar #JHBFire #JHBCBD pic.twitter.com/3DXKZUjcGm— SITHOLEEXPRESS (@SthembisoMedia) September 6, 2018
