    atrina Van Wyk was a desti-

    tute woman who lived in the

    Vlei area of Samora Machel.

    When she passed away inMarch,

    a small funeral services provider

    from the area took her body to the

    morgue whilst preparations for

    her funeral were being organised.

    However, almost three months

    later, her body is still in themortu-

    ary, for nobody seems to know

    whos responsibility it is to buryan

    indigent person.

    No means for funeral

    Funeral directorLuvuyoMamba

    claims that Ward 33 Councillor Ni-

    co Mzalisi had called in to ask

    Mamba to to prepare to buryKatri-

    na.

    The costs have escalated and

    Mamba says he does not have the

    means to bury thewoman, blaming

    Mzalisi for reneging on his word to

    help or contribute towards the bur-

    ial costs.

    Katrina Van Wyk,52, died of nat-

    ural causes at a shack she was oc-

    cupying at the beginning of March

    2016.

    Mamba says: The woman lived

    in a shack and lived with people

    who seemingly drank a lot of alco-

    hol. The people she stayed with

    didnt know her family.

    The councillor asked me to take

    the body into themorgue whilst he

    was raising funds for her burial,.

    Mamba said he had kept in con-

    tact with Mzalisi who appeared to

    be coming up with solution.

    After two months I approached

    him and asked what the latest was

    as I was also getting pressured by

    the morgue to collect the body.

    He told me that he had forward-

    ed the matter to the City of Cape

    Town and that he had given my

    contact details to them, Mamba

    told City Vision.

    Mamba said he had beenwaiting

    in vain since then.

    I now owe the morgue around

    R6000 in storage costs. I run a small

    business and I cant afford to have

    such disruptions, said Mamba.

    He supported a family four from

    his takings and all he needed was

    the means to bury the woman.

    City policy in place

    Councillor Mzalisi admitted

    asking Mamba to take care of the

    bodybutwasunable to assist in the

    burial. However, he had forwarded

    thematter to theCity of CapeTown

    for consideration, he said.

    A statement has revealed that

    the City of Cape Town approved a

    policy regarding the burial and

    cremation of destitute persons,

    where councillors are expected to

    apply for assistance.

    The policy advises that appli-

    cants can contact the local ward

    councillor or the sub council man-

    ager to apply for a destitute person

    to be buried of cremated.

    City can

    help with

    burials

    lunga adam

    June 16 should be a reflection

    of our failures as a country

    How have we, as nation, arrived at a

    juncture where our young are branded

    as agents of Satan while we seem to

    be content with the status quo.

    To me this is great cause for worry

    and is damn frightening.

    The youth seem to be at the centre

    of all evils of society. These days,

    when you hear of a murder or rape

    incident, it all points to our young.

    Our young roam the streets for days

    and nights on end, causing mayhem;

    the weeping, the wailing and the

    gnashing of teeth, to quote a biblical

    line.

    The tragic death of Anelisa Dulaze is

    a case in point.

    The Khayelitsha teenager had been

    missing since January after leaving

    home, apparently going out to cele-

    brate her birthday with friends.

    Her decomposing body was only

    discovered last month, buried under

    the foundation of a house under

    construction.

    It turns out the culprit is a young

    person of 24 years of age and had his

    whole future a
