Former Norton MP, Themba Bhuru Mliswa’s Shurugwi rural home was destroyed by lightning on Sunday night.
Bhuru wrote that:
“Very sad that we recently suffered a lightning attack in my rural area of Shurugwi. I was supposed to be there on the Sunday night when the lighting struck but was held at the Farm and arrived only after. Thank God that no one was hurt. It’s nature& I thank God nevadzimu vangu.
“The before and after lightning images below show the level of devastation inflicted at Mliswa Village. However, the King will rise again. When one palace is destroyed one has to build a bigger and better one.
“As a politician he also reminded those in positions of influence to set up structures for people who might fall in the same misfortune he said:
“However, at a human level what is the Government policy relating to such issues of lighting and other natural disasters. As a legislator these are some of the issues to raise in the August House. Is there any Disaster Fund to assist those who face such challenges,”.
