A dead man was found in floodwater in Centurion and another died after he was electrocuted in Soshanguve although it is yet to be determined whether this was due to the ongoing floods in the area according to Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma who is on a visit to the area today alongside MEC Lebogang Maile.

The minister also revealed that a third person is missing and more than a dozen cars have been swept away with rescue services managing to save about two hundred and fifty people while more than 600 have now been displaced.
