Touching scenes: Mdlalose family in serious pain as they bury 6 members, 4 others still missing after KZN floods.

A family of 10 members affected by the deadly floods said their wish was to bury all of them together.

Four members are yet to be found, and on Saturday, 30 April only six were laid to rest.

Slindile Mdlalose (43), Uyanda Mdlalose (10), Asanele Mdlalose (79), Snothando Mdlalose (5), Lulama Mdlalose (3) and Lubanzi Mdlalose (2) all died during the floods as their home in Mzinyathi north of Durban collapsed.

With the help of neighbours, four of them were found the same day while the other two were found days later. Four are still missing.

It was a sad occasion at the funeral service held at Sweetwater’s in Pietermaritzburg.

Family spokesman Linda Gcabashe said: “We lost 10 family members at one time. Four are still missing while we bury the six today. We are under a lot of pain.
