ANC bus crash: Families try identify victims
Once identified the bodies will be released to the families ahead of a joint funeral on Saturday.
JOHANNESBURG - Families who lost loved ones in a bus crash involving African National Congress (ANC) volunteers are finalising the process of identifying the bodies of their relatives.
ANC leaders from provincial and national structures have gathered at the Germiston mortuary.
The 10 who died in the crash had been working as volunteers at the ANC's election manifesto launch in Port Elizabeth when they were killed in the accident on their way home.
The party says continued support will be provided to bereaved families who are still struggling to come to terms with the death of their loved ones.
The ANC's Ekurhuleni chairperson Mzwandile Masina says, "Social workers have been on site to engage the families to the point that they come to terms with what has happened."
Once the families have identified the bodies, they will be released to them ahead of a joint funeral on Saturday.
The bodies arrived earlier today accompanied by Free State Transport MEC Butana Komphela.
