Three Johannesburg firefighters ran the Old Mutual Soweto Marathon on Sunday in bunker gear, to commemorate their fallen colleagues.
Their colleagues – Simphiwe Moropane, Mduduzi Ndlovu and Khathutshelo Muedi – were killed and many others injured after a fire broke out in the Bank of Lisbon building in the Johannesburg CBD on September 5.
"We are humbled by the gesture they are showing to the families," Johannesburg Emergency Management Services spokesperson Robert Mulaudzi told News24.
"This will remind them how thankful we are that they borrowed us their sons," he said.
