Lebogang Maile, the MEC for human settlements, urban planning, and Cogta, paid tribute to Moerane by saying that he was always happy and committed to helping the people. "This hurts a lot because he was not only a fellow soldier but also a friend and brother to us. We had a lot of good times together, and it's sad that he's gone. He will leave a wonderful legacy. He cared about our people, was very humble, and worked hard to help them. He was led by his love for his people.

"That's why he stayed on the council after the ANC lost the election. He could have left because he was no longer the mayor, but he knew that you don't need a job to help people, Maile said.
