The African National Congress has been cursed this year. Most of the comrades are being killed, or die of other factors. This is traumatizing, since the ANC is not together. The tension and the faction within this party is immense. Sad morning as the reports came that another ANC giant has fallen due to a horrific car accident. The safety of South Africans on the road is questionable. Now that important high profile people are succumbing due to horrific car accidents, the government should pay special attention to these roads. It was not long that Jolidee Matongo who was the mayor of Johannesburg died of a horrific car accident, after spending a day with Ramaphosa and the residents of Soweto assessing several issues. It is with sadness that comrades are dying on the roads that could have been fixed a long time ago. The Justice Ministry has confirmed that another government official was killed in a car accident. Khaya Somgqeza died in a car accident near Mthatha in the Eastern Cape.
He was the deputy minister of justice and correctional services, Patekile Holomisa's, chief of staff. This follows the death of Joburg Mayor Jolidee Matongo in a car accident last weekend.
Somgqeza, according to Minister of Justice Ronald Lamola, was a dedicated and experienced public servant with a keen eye for detail. According to Lamola, his death leaves a void that will be difficult to fill. Before moving to the deputy minister's office, Somgqeza was the divisional manager of International Relations in Parliament.
The accidents that are happening in the Eastern Cape are shocking. The municipalities are pressured for the implementation of better strategies that will aid reduce the likelihood that residents are susceptible to fatal car accidents. A tough moment for the ANC, as it is heading to the elections, and needs majority wins in municipal regions.
