Synagogue Building Collapse: 25 South African survivors evacuated home

Synagogue Building collapse

The South Africa government has evacuated 25 of her 26 citizens who survived the Synagogue church building collapse.
One survivor, who was not taken home returned to the Synagogue, the Minister in Charge of Pretoria, Jeff Radebe said.
Eighty four South Africans died when the building collapsed two weeks ago, while 265 survived and 17 are unaccounted for.‎

Mr. Radebe who was quoted in reports said the evacuation is “the biggest evacuation effort by the (South African) Air Force since the dawn of democracy”.

“The plan was to bring back all the 26, but there were only 25 who actually boarded the aircraft because one returned to the synagogue yesterday,” said Mr. Radebe.

According to reports, a 19-member medical team including specialised doctors, nurses and medical military paramedics took care of the injured on board a military C-130 aircraft.

Conflicting figures

Despite ‎the conclusion of rescue operations at the site and an official announcement of 84 deaths, the South African Minister put the total number of deaths at 115, citing an unnamed personnel in Lagos as his source.

“We understand from our assessment team that the total number of people who have perished is now 115, but those are not all South Africans. South Africans (are) about 84 that have died.”

The General Overseer of the church, T.B Joshua, on Sunday at his church service said he will be visiting South Africa once every month.

Mr. Joshua said the decision to embark on the visits was a revelation from God and a blessing to the people of South Africa and Southern Africans.

“Those who are affected in one way or the other, and those who passed on to glory, their desire is to see the work of salvation they die for to continue and reach unreachable places.

“For that, what they are coming here for, should be taken to meet them in their country. Once in a month, I will be travelling to South Africa,” T.B Joshua said.‎
