The Chairperson of the National Council of Provinces, Mr. Amos Masondo, and the Speaker of the National Assembly, Ms. Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula, were among the Presiding Officers of Parliament who sent their condolences to the families of the people who died in the Boksburg fuel tank disaster. The Presiding Officers have also said that they hope everyone who was hurt in this horrible and pointless event gets better quickly.It is impossible to fathom the anguish and emotional agony that afflicted families are going through during this time, which is supposed to be one of cheer and joy as Christians celebrate the birth of Christ. In this challenging time, South Africans are asked to remember these families in their prayers, as well as the families of the injured. All efforts, especially those made by government agencies, should be made to help the people who have lost a loved one and everyone affected by the tragedy.

The Presiding Officers applaud how quickly provincial and national government agencies, non-profit groups, and other public and private organizations worked together to help needy people.

“Losing loved ones at any moment is upsetting. The victims’ sad and abhorrent manner of death only aggravates the agony. The Presiding Officers said, “We also want to thank the police, rescue workers, people in charge of crisis management, and health professionals working around the clock on this disaster.”

Through its oversight committees and other channels permitted by the Constitution, Parliament will make sure it intervenes when it is needed to do so.
