The death of former JHB mayor Mpho Moerane is truly tragic, especially when his predecessor, Jolidee Matongo, died in a car accident in September of last year, which was preceded by the death of another mayor, Geoff Makhubo, in July of last year.
"This is a sad day for Johannesburg and for the nation, as we mourn the passing of a vibrant, young leader. Mpho Moerane was an entrepreneurial, multi-skilled leader who placed his talents and creative energy at the disposal of the citizens of Johannesburg. We will miss his contribution to his political home, the African National Congress, and to the development of the country," President Cyril Ramaphosa wrote on Facebook.
RIP Mpho Moerane, as I said yesterday, but it appears that being Jozi Mayor is a cursed position, as he is the third ANC former mayor to pass away in such a short period of time. I guess all of these Jozi Mayors, past and present, must make sure that their funeral policies are up to date and not in arrears. ANC comrades are known to take each other out for political positions, so hopefully they will investigate the cause of the accidents in the run-up to their conference. Condolences to his family as they mourn his passing.
