In a tragic turn of events, a 28-year-old petrol attendant lost his life while on duty at a petrol station. Mpho’s body was discovered in a storeroom by fellow employees, leaving the entire community in shock.
Preliminary investigations suggest that Mpho’s untimely death may be attributed to the inhalation of exhaust fumes from a generator. It is suspected that he had switched on the generator during a load shedding episode, inadvertently exposing himself to the harmful gases.
No, his employers and colleagues must tell us the truth. No ways.
