Chairperson, I would like to thank the hon member Beatrice Ngcobo for the statement she made regarding the tragic loss of life in KwaNongoma and in KwaZulu-Natal as a result of lightning strikes. We would like to join in expressing our condolences to the families and those who have lost loved ones. We would also like to commend the disaster management centre, both nationally as well as in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, for the prompt action that was taken. In particular we commend the MEC for co-operative governance and traditional affairs in KwaZulu-Natal, who visited and assisted the families who were affected by this terrible tragedy. We note that the MEC has undertaken to assist the families with burying their loved ones and is also undertaking to assist them in installing lightning conductors to prevent future tragedies. Thank you very much.
