38 stranded Malawians returns after Intercape steps in to assist: Premature birth complication, twin-boy dies

It has been a nightmare journey for 38 Malawian nationals who have been stuck for over a month in a broken bus in South Africa but the group is  finally heading back home after transport company Intercape stepped in to assist.

A trip to Malawi was meant to be two days, but these people have been stuck in this broken bus for over a month. Picture: Vumani Mkhize/EWN.

The group has been living in the bus for about a month with their vehicle repeatedly breaking down in and around Johannesburg.

One passenger gave birth to twins on the side of the road, but one of the baby boys passed away.

The baby passed away due to complications caused by premature birth, while his brother is in a stable condition at the OR Tambo Memorial Hospital.

Intercape is taking the group home on what will be a much more comfortable ride.

The company has committed to taking care of the passengers during the two-day journey.

The cross border road transport agency has issued an emergency permit to assist the Malawian nationals cross the border.

Brave Ndlovu said the Malawians are happy to be heading back home.
