Time of Cruise Ship DeathGwen Mnguni

 

Gwen Mnguni, 33, from Diepkloof in Soweto, South Africa was on the cruise with her husband Nhlonipho Mnguni when Prime Time caught fire around 2:00 in the afternoon on November 19, 2016 near the back of the boat where the galley, bathroom and engines were located.

Nhlonipho said the boat was stationary when the blaze started‚ prompting him to run around to find a fire extinguisher to help put it out. He did not know that his wife Gwen was trapped in the toilet as he rushed to fight the fire.

The couple have three children ages 17-months, seven and twelve.

Gwen Mnguni was on the cruise with two friends, Portia Gumede and Roselyn Molepi, who also died. All were photographed (see case photos) on the cruise only moments before their deaths.
