The girl said the river was flooded, with no help to save her except to call out to the adults. Thabisile Majola (15) (who witnessed the incident), said she could not sleep at night with the pain she felt as the rivers flowed away with Pholisani Sithole (14) of Siphahleni and Mbali Mthembu (15) of KwaZashuke at 2pm.

“We were coming out of a horse-moving event in Mphithini village, and on our way back, we found the Siphahleni River full of crossings. I could not cross because my home was across the river. “Polisa and Mbali, they said they would cross because the river was not very full. I saw them being swept away by the water and shouting for help, it was difficult for me to get into the water because there were so many. “I ran home and told my mother about their departure, and people were called and searched for her. "Since this happened,
I have not slept well at night, I am still scared because the picture is back to normal," said Thabisile with tears in her eyes.
