SA bodies may be home this week

The remains of the 81 South Africans who died when a church building belonging to the Synagogue Church of All Nations (Scoan) collapsed in Lagos, Nigeria, on September 12, could finally be home sometime this week. 
South African high commissioner to Nigeria Lulu Mnguni on Sunday said that they were finalising the process of bringing back the remains of the victims.
“We are in an advance stage of repatriating the remains of those who lost their lives in the tragedy,” Mnguni said. 
He also said that he was expecting minister in the presidency Jeff Radebe to arrive with the bodies. He is expected to fly to Nigeria to speed up the repatriation process. 
“This is a final push. The minister will meet the president of Nigeria and other officials,” Mnguni said.
