Couple runs out of their bedroom with pants

Filed under: Breaking News,Lifestyle & Fashion |

A spill over tremor from Botswana and South Africa Monday evening hit some parts of Southern Province and citizens quickly took to social media to express their shock and experience.

“Thank God we are all safe. Now imagine my neighbour with the wife they came out running in their pants ine shocked,” wrote Kelvin Mudenda of Livingstone after the tremor hit the tourist capital.

Another Livingstone resident Danny Anakene posted and said “Rushed for an umbrella bululu…Closest parachute I could get my hands on.”

Mwendalubi Maumbi also told her friend in one of the comments on her post that “You should have seen my niece run to heaven knows where lol.”

“People at Hillcrest scamped, others started praying while others were crying.It was drama,” wrote Edward Mwanza, another Livingstonian.

And speaking in a telephone interview with Byta FM 90.3 Monday evening, Pantalian Chisengele a Magoye resident confirmed that the tremor hit the small rural agriculture constituency as the shaking of things was visible.

“Yes, yes, yes.We felt it.The shaking was visible and even our visitors felt it,” said Chisengele.

Meanwhile, Joey Millar reports that BOTSWANA has been rocked by what appears to be its strongest ever earthquake – just hours after South Africa was also struck.

This afternoon’s earthquake has measured 6.8 on the Richter scale – a rare strong quake for Africa.

It is unknown whether much damage has been caused by the quake, which occurred at around 5.40pm local time (6.40pm GMT) at a depth of around 35km.

Luckily the quake’s epicentre struck an area with few inhabitants.

Users took to the Earthquake Report website to express their shock and describe their experience.

One, writing from the city of Letlhakane, said: “We felt the house was vibrating, all the window and door panels shaking heavily.

“We went outside and felt the same.”

A second, writing from Gaborone, said: “It wz very scary but there was no damage”

Another resident of the southern African country’s capital said: “So frightened.”

Quakes of this size are rare in Botswana, with geological experts saying it could be historically large.

LastQuake said: “Earthquakes in #Botswana are pretty rare. Nothing comparable in our catalogue over the last decades.”

It is incredibly rare for earthquakes of this size to strike Botswana.

The quake was also felt in neighbouring South Africa, which had experienced a 5.3 quake earlier today.

Tremors have now been felt in the country following the Botswana quake, while it was also felt in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia and even as far away as Angola.

  2. The occurrence is geological.There exits a long fissure that that starts from the red sea right down to form the great east African valley and lake Malawi down to Mozambique and onother one branches to the west to form the great lakes including Tanganyika.The Gwembe trough or Zambezi valley runs westwards and disappears under the Kalahari desert.So once in a while,movements take place along these faults causing tremors and earthquakes.

  4. Why didn’t this couple choose to hold their pants in the hands and run WITH them outside, naked, instead of putting them on so that they could run outside IN pants?
