MIDDELBURG factory explosion survivor Thando Sekati has described how the only way his family knew he was still alive was when he cried or moved his feet.

“They would see the tears under my bandages and they would know that I am not dead yet,” he said. “I used to move my feet a little so that they could see I was still alive.”

Sekati is one of the survivors of the devastating explosion and fire at Rolfe Laboratories in Middelburg in October last year.
