Lentswe, Klerksdorp - The management of Klerksdorp/Tshepong Hospital Complex requests readers to help trace the family or relatives of two patients who died in hospital.

The deceased Edward Motloung (53) was admitted at hospital’s ward 7 on 13 July and passed away on 15 July.

Hospital spokesperson Nico Masiu said: “According to the hospital records he resided at Mayfair Village, Plot No: 9, but the people who stay there said they don’t know him.”

The hospital said another deceased, Hassie Edward Joka (71) was admitted on 10 August at ward 10 and then passed away on 12 August. “He is said to be residing at Room: B54, Jouberton Hostel, so people who used to stay with him said it is alleged that he hails from Kimberley,” Masiu said.

Readers who might know the deceased are advised to inform the family or call Liza Mapepesa on 018 406 3257. The hospital said should no one come forward to claim the deceased, the hospital will after a while decide to give pauper funerals.
