Two cousins burn to death in early morning shack fire

By Nadia Samie

Two cousins burnt to death early on Monday morning in a shack fire in Gugulethu. It is alleged that the two youth, Lifa Sika, aged 20-years, of Gugulethu and Khaya Mahlanyana, aged 19-years, of Summer Greens, fell asleep while an electric braai was burning. Relatives and neighbours who were woken by screams, tried in vain to rescue the two from the burning shack, but to no avail. Due to the intensity of the fire, the cousins were burnt beyond recognition. Mahlanyana matriculated recently from Gugulethu High School. Sika’s mother Phumla, who lives in Johannesburg, was on her way to Cape Town on Monday afternoon.
