The City of Johannesburg has been covered by a dark cloud of death in less than a year as three mayors have died consecutively.
The death of these mayors has put in lot of fears that whoever sits on that mayoral sit will not last long, they will die. This is why some people on social media have even referred that office as the office of death.
I mean it has never happened that all the occupants of that office, in this case being the three mayors, all die consecutively in less than 12 months. None of those mayors completed their term in office, they die.
Shortly after his passing,in September, his predecessor, Jolidee Matongo also passed on after being involved in a car accident. It was just few months of him being elected to the office then he passed away on his way from the campaign trail alongside Cyril Ramaphosa.
Mpho Moerane was elected to replace him as the City of Joburg executive mayor. However, his time in the office was very short as the ANC lost in Joburg to DA and was replaced by DA's mayor, Mphohuq Phalatse in November 2021.
Last week, the former mayor, Moerane sadly lost his life after he was involved in a car accident,two weeks back.
This makes him the second Joburg mayor to die in a car accident and the third one to die in less than a year.
This, without a doubt put fear in the current mayor, Mpho Phalatse.
Phalatse says she has heard fears that she will be next to die following the successive deaths of her three predecessors.
Speaking at the funeral of Moerane on Sunday, Phalatse said if statistics were anything to go by, there were fears that she could be the next mayor to die.
However, she added by saying that she did not plan to die prematurely.
