A terrible event has resulted in a family being forced to find new housing following the fire that destroyed their house. They are now living in a tent (see image), and they are looking for assistance in the shape of any kind of housing.
The house used to be large enough for a family of nine to live there in peace.
After what they considered to be a series of six consecutive arson attacks, they are now living in makeshift shelters consisting of a tent and wooden shacks.
According to Bheki Qwabe, 49, the fire began in the garage, and it quickly spread through the home and the rondavel.
He estimated that the total value of his home and the belongings included inside it may exceed R250,000.
This took place on many separate days. When it began, we evacuated to another home and slept there.
"While my family was sleeping in the rondavel, I was sleeping in my automobile. But as of right now, we do not have a house.
He said that their neighbor had provided them with a one-pole tent, and the Umlalazi Municipality had provided them with two shacks.
"The fire began in locations that were a safe distance away from any electrical equipment. Vutha is often sent by someone, but I have no idea who may be responsible for this," he added, adding that locals have been offering assistance in the form of food, clothing, and prayer.
We were unable to recover almost all of our belongings, including our birth certificates and school uniforms.
He said that they would be grateful for any kind of refuge.
"I have found someone who is helping with the vutha, and it has stopped, but we worry that it could come back," he added. "I have found someone who is helping with the vutha."
Luleka Mbonambi, who works for the municipality, said that they had intentions of constructing a home for the family.
In the while that they are waiting for a suitable home, we have provided them with a temporary construction.
Thandonjani Hlongwane, who is the chairperson of the KZN Traditional Healers Association, said that the family needed to locate a powerful inyanga to assist them.
He warned them that if nothing was done, members of their family would perish and that the inyanga would purify their house and offer them something useful in exchange.
"This presents a significant risk. People who want to see the family torn apart often send these messages. "When the inyanga offers the family muthi, the family has to pay attention and pay attention to what the inyanga says," he added.
