Robert Mulaudzi, Johannesburg emergency services spokesperson, said one of the standby generators leaked as a result of wear and tear due to age.

Mulaudzi stated the 15th floor was completely flooded and the whole building was affected by the smell.

No injuries have been reported during the evacuation of the building.
