Sad: Father mother and children all died the same day, See What happened to them

Terrence Kagande, a former Harare rugby and basketball coach, died yesterday in a gas explosion in Bloemfontein, South Africa, much to the surprise of relatives and friends in both countries.

 Kagande (48), his wife Cindy, 42, and their children Jade (16) and Isiah (13) died from burns caused by the gas stove he used on Thursday morning.

 Before moving to South Africa, the athlete taught rugby and basketball at St Georges and St Johns colleges.

 Gary Kagande, a couple's representative, said the couple was saddened by the tragic death of their brother and family.

 He also used the occasion to protest against allegations that South African officials wanted more murder charges.

 “As a family we are scared and want to mourn in peace for our lost brother and his family. We want to reject the rumors that the police are investigating cases of murder and contempt where they deserve it, ”he said.

 Gary, a former rugby player for Zimbabwe Sables, said the children were lying in the living room with a burner while their parents were in their bedroom.

 "According to reports, the blanket he was wearing caught fire and melted the gas pipe from the heater, causing the explosion," Gary said.

 Terry and Cindy both died of poisoning and inhaling the smoke before saving their children or themselves. We are ready to give a full report to Cindy's sister, who is representing us all in Bloemfontein, tomorrow, ”he said.

 "Terry was a gentle student. He loved all sports, but basketball and rugby were his favorites. At St George's and St John's Colleges, he taught both.

 In addition, she saw Cindy as a kind and loving mother to her children and a brother-in-law who welcomed the whole Kagande family.

 Garry thanked the couple and thanked all Zimbabweans and South Africans who helped with the funeral.

 Terrence was the daughter of Herbert Kagande, pastor of New Apostolic Church in Hatfield, and Jane Kagande, living in Bloemfontein, South
