Social Development to help Malawians stuck on a broken bus for a month

Community members in Benoni have been donating food and water to people stranded in a bus that left Randburg for Malawi 30 days ago.

According to EWN reporter, Vumani Mkhize, the Department of Social Development will now arrange a shelter to house the group of Malawian nationals stuck in a bus in Benoni.

The group have spent the past 30 days in different parts of Johannesburg, due to technical problems.

Two days ago, one woman gave birth to twins on the side of Tom Jones road in Benoni.
