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.

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.
