Dozens of skeletal remains surfaced following a mudslide that uprooted graves at Ntuzuma Cemetery, north of Durban, washing bones into the street.
A portion of the cemetery fence collapsed when torrential rains swept across the province, causing major flooding and damage to infrastructure since Saturday.
According to an official from the cemetery, who is not authorized to speak to the media, dozens of graves from the 1970s were uprooted due to the mudslide, which affected only a portion of the graveyard.
“These are not new graves. They are old. This is something beyond our control.”
Resident Precious Majola, 28, said: “It’s sad but also scary seeing the bones of people when we walk past. A lot of people are superstitious about this stuff. I know people who changed their route to avoid walking past this area.”
Thabani Ngubane, 45, said he felt for the families of the affected graves.
“Imagine this is one of your loved ones. It is sad but you cannot play with mother nature.”
Grace Mbenjwa, 57, said she was shocked when she heard what had happened.
“One of my grandkids told me what the rain did. I was shocked because I know people who are buried here,” she said.
City officials had the difficult task of accessing the road adjacent to the cemetery while mud, debris and skeletal remains littered the road.

Zambians Lambast Nigerian Prophet Seer1 For Asking Their President To Be A Dictator
Zambians on social media have come after controversial Nigerian Man of God Andrew Ejimadu alias Seer1 who also calls himself as the Don of Power for calling out President Hakainde Hichilema to be a dictator if he is to succeed in making Zambia the better country.
Yesterday, Seer1 called on Hichilema to take off his gloves and unleash a little bit of dictatorship, according to him youths would understand him because they are the ones gasping for a better Zambia.
According to Seer1, Hichilema’s vision to make Zambia prosper is being shadowed by his predecessor Edgar Chagwa Lungu’s loyalist who are still in control of public offices such as the judiciary.
“You cannot expect someone employed or appointed by Lungu to be loyal to you. It’s a lie,” he told Hichilema, adding that “Just like Paul Kagame of Rwanda, it’s time for you to throw away your gloves and unleash a little bit of dictatorship, believe me, the youths will understand.”
This did not settle well with Zambians who plainly told him that affairs of the Zambian government are not his to worry and that they do not need a dictator to make Zambia a great country.
Below are some of the comments from Zambians.
Lazarous Siwakwi; “Then it will not be a rule of law, and just accept that everything happening now is not fighting corruption but fighting your enemies and everything we see now is coming from state house plus all ACC try and error is the president try and error, if you want you can say it’s not true but all the indicators are now pointing to this.”
õhñ Mķ Mkandawirę; “It will not be too late before Zambia is colonized by Prophets of Nigeria.”
Gracy Kays Kakoka; “Zambians repeat after me….we are foolish and stupid coz we are agreeing with him!”
John Sikaonga; “We don’t need a dictator in this country what is the problem with this seer 1 has God forgotten us he kills people who fail to follow his demonic ideas and he wants our president to be a dictator shame God help us.”
Winston Banda; “Don’t bring anachronistic in Zambia we are different country not Nigeria where humans are killed like dogs every day.”
