    Bekezela Msipa.
    Boyd Manhema.
    Chiedza Chatikobo.
    Fadzai Chaparadza.

The ZRP is still appealing to members of the public who suspect that their relatives might have perished in the inferno to come forward for the DNA testing  process  at the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) in Bulawayo as three other remains are yet to be identified.

Meanwhile, the police and Registrar General's office have established a contact point at United Bulawayo Hospital for the processing of burial orders.
