Kilimon crash victim's family: 'It's only two of us left'

The remaining members of a family that were killed in a crash over the weekend have described their unbearable loss. 

12 killed in Midlands minibus crash

Thirteen people - all of them relatives - died after the minibus they were in left the road and rolled down an embankment in Kilimon between Underberg and Bulwer on Saturday.

It's believed the driver lost control while trying to negotiate a bend.

Zuziwe Mndali says her family had left home to attend a traditional ceremony and didn't make it back home. 

"I kept seeing people running towards the direction of the incident and I followed them. As I got into the scene, I saw that it was my family."

"I am in so much pain. We lost our mother, brothers and their wives. It's only two of us girls that are left behind." 

She says they don't know how they are going to survive as they are both unemployed and are now left with the responsibility of taking care of six children.

Senior government officials - including the Premier - visited the crash scene - as well as the family home on Sunday.

Bulwer police are probing a case of culpable homicide.
