On the 3rd of October, a wall collapsed on guests at a wedding ceremony in GaChuene Thokgwaneng, Limpopo, Zimbabwe, killing four people. Before heavy winds blew, individuals who attended the ceremony were said to have been seated in a tent close to an unroofed building. Three persons died instantly, while others were injured. One individual later died in the hospital. The deceased have been identified as Tiisetso Bushy Macheka, 36, Lesego Ribisi of Hwelereng village, 18, Phinias Maripane Kganyago of Gamashashane, and Samson Sambo, who died at Lebowakgomo hospital, according to SAPS spokesperson Brig Motlafela Mojapelo. Phinias Yika, the bride's brother and family spokesperson, said the incident occurred around 5 p.m. when the wind began to pick up. He claimed that the tent was not hinged to the wall and that it was around 1.5 to 2 meters away from it. Those who were seated inside the tent were trapped when a wall collapsed on top of them. The bride and her in-laws had already left when the event occurred, according to Yika.
