Ondangwa Pick nÔÇÖ Pay kills infant

achild died and one teller was missing at the time of going to the press after the building that houses the retail outlet, Pick n’ Pay in Ondangwa collapsed in Ondangwa yesterday.
Preliminary indications are that an inside pillar caved in as Sunday shoppers went by their usual rounds. Had it been a week day, it could have been worse.
According to eye-witnesses, it was an appalling scene where parents sprinted to escape while pent-up mothers looked for their children.
“It was terrible. I think one of the pillars collapsed, which made the building to tumble. It collapsed from the inside that side where the cashiers are normally standing. One of the cashiers are missing. I do not think she made it,” said Frieda Mamuschka Kangandjera who was on her way into the shop when the tragedy occured. There are some unconfirmed reports that a minor earth tremor was recorded near Tsumeb over the weekend, which could have affected or reached Ondangwa.
