While most of the province awoke to the reality of destroyed homes and missing people after the unrelenting KZN floods, the community of Ntuzuma is reeling after human remains were exposed at their local cemetery.

OPEN OLD WOUNDS IN NTUZUMA

The graves in Ntuzuma, north of Durban, are exposed due to the KZN floods. As the community walked the streets, they found skulls and partial skeletons lying by the wayside in a muddy deluge.
