Mom burns to death after saving kids from a fire

Mom burns to death after saving kids from a fire. A court heard the fire was started by a neighbour, Philani Maphosa (25). Cynthia Ndlovu and her three minor children Sylvester (13), Prisca (12) and Chantel (7) Dube were asleep when Maphosa allegedly torched their bedroom hut a fortnight ago.

A Matabeleland North woman who heroically saved her three minor children from a fire that razed their bedroom hut was burnt to death when the hut caved in on her.

According to reports by the Chronicle, she burnt to death after failing to fully open the door she had squeezed her children through. Circumstances are that Ndlovu and her three children retired to bed at 8PM on September 20 before they were awakened by the fire around 3AM.

“At around 3AM when they were asleep, the now-deceased heard the door being shaken from outside as if someone was trying to open it. She woke up her children and saw a light flashing towards the kitchen hut. After a short while they noticed that the bedroom hut was on fire.

“The now deceased and her children looked for the keys but could not find them. She managed to pull the bottom of the door for the kids to go out,” said the prosecutor Mr Zivanai Hlomayi. The kids rushed to inform Ms Sibongile Ndlovu who alerted other neighbours. When the neighbours got to the scene the roof had collapsed.

In the morning villagers tracked footprints that led them to Queen’s Business Centre about 3km away where they found Maphosa and enacted mob justice on him before having him arrested.
