Storm kills toddler

Hail storms and strong winds caused havoc in rural Mahlabathini, in northern Zululand, on Tuesday night.

Malwande Dubazane, 2, was killed and hundreds of families were left homeless. More than 60 homes, two churches and three schools were gutted in the storm.

Zululand district mayor, Zanele Magwaza-Msibi, said yesterday that the death of Dubazane was more painful then the loss of homes. - Canaan Mdletshe
