MOSSEL BAY NEWS - A man and a woman were found dead in the granny flat in which they lived in Mossel Bay on Monday, 17 April.
The bodies of Henry Mungelezi Gama (40) and Vaileti Jambukani (32) were discovered by the owner of the premises at 51 Church Street at 09:05 on Monday. The owner of the property broke the window of the door after he called for them and there was no reply.
Inside the granny flat a gas bottle was found that possibly could not close properly as well as a black cast iron utensil with coals inside.
It is suspected Gama and Jambukani might have been overwhelmed by gas fumes. Both were from Malawi. It is not clear when the two died because the property owner saw them last on Saturday, 15 April before he left for Vleesbaai, before discovering the bodies on the Monday.
The case is being investigated by Wo Erard Briel of the Mossel Bay Police Station investigations unit.
