The 47-year-old body of the South African who died in a mine explosion in New Zealand will be brought back to the country to be buried on his family farm in Limpopo.

Koos Jonker had reportedly left the country after a crime-related incident.

Jonker was one of 29 trapped miners who had been trapped since Friday last week and were killed in a second blast yesterday at the Pike River coal mine.

Meanwhile, the South African Government has sent its deepest condolences to families of the miners who died in the mine.

Chief Director for Public Diplomacy, Mr Saul Kgomotso Molobi says the country expresses its admiration to the New Zealand government for trying everything they could to try and rescue the miners after the first explosion on Friday.
