LIMPOPO- Two men, believed to be foreign nationals were discovered in a spaza shop in Masemola, near Lebowakgomo. The deceased were found by one of the deceased’s partner. The SAPS report suggest that they were cooking food inside the shop, using a gas stove and forgot to switch it off before they went to sleep.
“Prior to the discovery of the bodies, there was a strange gas smell that could be inhaled a few meters away from the spaza shop. The cause of death on the two deceased will still be determined by the ongoing police investigations including the post mortem examination,” Ngoepe explained.
Their identities and nationalities have been withheld by the police until their families are informed. The Provincial Police Commissioner, Lt Gen Nneke Ledwaba urged members of the public to take precaution to avoid such incidents.
