Horrific car crash involving Nelson Mandela'S Bay mayor

The curfew-breaking vehicle crash that claimed the livedeadlys of two people and left Nelson Mandela Bay mayor Nqaba Bhanga severely injured in Gqeberha, indicates that he's an "unguided missile" and now no longer suit to maintain office.

This is according to Good Party councillor in the Nelson Mandela Bay metro Lawrence Troon. But Bhanga's party, the DA, has called on the public and opposition parties to stop speculating about the incident.

Bhanga's spokesperson also said the police were investigating and accused Troon of previously having "made all sorts of assertions without evidence"

The mayor was riding his navy Mercedes Benz after his forty fourth birthday celebrations whilst his vehicle collided with a grey Audi on the intersection of St Leonards Drive and Uitenhage Road before midnight on Saturday. 

A pair in the Audi, a male driver and female passenger died at the scene, whilst Bhanga was rushed to health facility after sustaining severe injuries.

The police identified the passenger as 44-year-old Nonzwakazi Maho.Police spokesperson Captain Sandra Janse Van Rensberg said the identification of the driver in the Audi was not yet known. The twist of fate occurred at 23:30 - an hour and a 1/2 of after curfew. 

Troon stated as soon as Bhanga had recovered from his accidents, he should provide an explanation for his motives for breaking curfew.

Bhanga had surgical procedure late on Sunday for inner bleeding because of the injuries that he sustained, said his spokesperson Leander Kruger.

"He is presently in healing in the excessive care unit. His medical doctors have indicated that he's in a solid condition," Kruger added. 

Kruger declined to touch upon Bhanga breaking curfew, saying that the problem was under police investigation.
