Last week, Scrolla.Africa reported on two friends who died on New Year’s Eve after they drank alcohol mixed with sanitiser and a fizzy drink among other things. 

Now, on Wednesday, their friend has also died.

Dieketseng Ratsiu, 24, and Manyane Phahloli, 20, died after drinking the concoction at a party. Their friend, Nobengazi Moahloli, 23, is now also deceased after being in ICU for two weeks.

The three deceased together with four other friends from Turflaagte in Mangaung were hospitalised, but fortunately the four survived. 

The three girls will be laid to rest at a joint funeral on Friday.

Nobengazi’s elder brother Mxolisi said Nobengazi was loved by the community.

“He helped fight crime and comforted victims of crime,” he said.

Manyane’s sister, Sylvia said she was looking forward to Manyane completing a three year business management course this year.
