An appeal was made for the members of the public to assist the families with burial expenses . As the two players are alleged to have been the breadwinners, it is going to be a challenge for the family to afford funeral costs , hence the call for assistance by the Ward Councillor .

The names of the two players who died were not released . It was warned however that the residents were cautioned of the weather that would hit the province and some parts of South Africa .
