Border incident: three coffins with dead bodies inside left on road

A border outpost reported an outrageous incident in which three coffins containing dead bodies were dumped on a side road.

According to a border post official, the bodies of two men and one woman were being transported from Johannesburg to Maputo province and Gaza.

“When they got there they found out the paperwork was not in order, and just dumped the coffins on the road and left,” relatives complained about an neglect attitude of a carrier.

Relatives accompanying bodies were put up overnight in a house in Ressano Garcia.

“We contacted the government-run morgue in Tonga and the bodies were kept there. Our offices in Pretoria, together with the department of health, arranged the paperwork,” relatives said.

The last paperwork was finished on Tuesday, all the bodies have been repatriated to Mozambique.
