Alexandra toddler Evelyn Chauke laid to rest

Community members and various organisations have gathered to pay their last respect to the three-year-old Alexandra toddler, Evelyn Chauke.

Evelyn slipped from her father's grip during flash floods caused by heavy rain in parts of Johannesburg, Ekurhuleni and Tshwane last month.
