Couple electrocuted a day after returning from honeymoon
On Sunday, June 13, a newlywed couple from South Africa was electrocuted to death, barely a day after returning from their honeymoon.
The couple’s bodies were discovered in the bathtub, according to Johannesburg police spokesperson Captain Mavela Masondo.
“The couple is thought to have been electrocuted. Police are currently awaiting the findings of the post-mortem examination, which will determine the cause of death.”
Khan, 24, was allegedly electrocuted after touching a tap in the shower, and her husband was electrocuted while attempting to assist her.
Aziz Ally, a community activist, told reporters that power shortages and illicit connections were a major issue in the neighborhood. Illegal connections, he claims, were set up in broad daylight.
“The issue is that many other neighbors in Homestead Park and Mayfair South are feeling the same unpleasant sensation when they turn on the taps at their homes.
“It appears to be a bigger problem in terms of what’s going on.”
Mongezi Ntsokolo, the CEO of City Power, verified the occurrence and has now requested an urgent investigation into allegations that the couple died as a result of a problem caused by improper energy connections.
“Since Monday am, a team has been working on a preliminary inquiry to uncover the facts, and we will reveal the results later.
“While we investigate, we warn households to avoid tampering with electric infrastructure, vandalism, and unauthorized connections that might cause the circuit to fail.”
