Floods wash away top business

An Amanzimtoti family risk losing everything after their insurance company pulled the plug on its policy within a week of devastating flash floods.

Although a clean-up is under way, the main house has been condemned and is propped up on scaffolding.

The business’s entertainment lapa, with expensive equipment, refrigerators and furniture, collapsed into the gorge.
