Several houses, a school and farms were badly affected during the storm and strong winds in Ga-Rathoke village outside Marble Hall in Limpopo.
The storm left residents in four neighborhoods without power for days.
A woman from the area was injured when a wall collapsed on her. Affected residents say the damage runs into thousands of rands.
Residents also say they have not been given any help.
“The storm affected us a lot and the damage is very large and runs into the thousands. Municipal officials came and when we asked them how they were going to help us, they said they didn’t know and to this day we haven’t received any help,” said one of the residents.
Meanwhile, Ephraim Mogale municipal spokesman, Percy Moagi, says a disaster team has been dispatched to assess the damage.
“After the disaster happened, the municipality sent a team to those areas to assess the damage and the team completed a preliminary report and sent it to Sekukhune district. We are working with all spheres of government to provide assistance to these affected areas.
