CONSTRUCTION on a trench near the Red Location Museum in New Brighton, Port Elizabeth, has been suspended following the deaths of two people in separate incidents just hours apart.

Phumeza Ndlebe, 39, of Masangwana, was found lying face-down and partially covered with sand in the water-filled trench on Wednesday morning.

Just hours later, construction worker Bonisile Mabongo, 59, of Motherwell, was shot dead while he was speaking to police investigating Ndlebe’s death.
