Bad weather in KwaZulu-Natal has claimed two lives in Nongoma’s Ward 21, eMahhashini.

The Buthelezi family members were killed by a lightning strike on Friday afternoon. 

A relative of the two was injured and rushed to hospital.

The storms damaged a number of houses in both Nongoma and Ulundi.

The provincial Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) says disaster management teams are busy with assessments.  

They are also providing support to the Buthelezi family.

KZN Cogta MEC, Sipho Hlomuka, has sent condolences to the family.

Hlomuka has also warned residents across KZN of the dangers posed by inclement weather conditions in the province, urging them to be cautious.
