Akhumzi Jezile was la!d to rest on Saturday.
Whilst the cause of death was car accident, we’ve had yet to learn how exactly it happened and how bad it was to claim all five lives.
During his funeral on Saturday at Rhema Bible Church, Akhumzi’s uncle detailed how the accident happen.
“A truck carrying a car went into them. They managed to escape it but the trailer went after them cutting the top of their car. They all died immediately. I didn’t recognize my beloved son. I had to go in and check for him closely,” he said.
Akhumzi friend who also died in the same accident, Siya’s father also spoke about going to identify his daughter.
“I went to the scene. I couldn’t stay there. Not even for an hour. It was bad. From there we went to the forensics. All of them had injuries on their heads. All of them. My daughter, I recognized her feet. She was my daughter, she grew up with us. So when I saw her feet, I knew it was her. I didn’t need to see the rest of her.”
