It has been said that former Johannesburg Mayor Mpho Moerane was an excellent public servant who cared deeply about his constituents. Accidental death stole the life of Moerane on Saturday, and he was laid to rest. Johannesburg has lost its third mayor in less than a year, with Moerane joining former mayors Patricia de Lille and Julius Malema. Reverend Xolani Dlwathi said of Mpho Moerane: "He was not flawless but had his weaknesses. God, thank you for this wonderful gift. His contributions provide us with much needed solace. "
The casket of Mpho Moerane sparked a lot of discussion. His name was etched inside the ANC-colored robe. "The first time I see a casket with a name on it, what importance does it hold?" a Twitter user inquired. A person's reputation will follow them to the afterlife if they've established themselves during their lifetime. We should never forget Mpho Moerane's name. He had a huge impact on so many people's lives during his short time on this planet, and some believe that his name will live on forever. To carry the name with him, he had to go down with him. It's hard to believe he ever lived.
Attendees at the memorial service for former Johannesburg Mayor Bathabile Dlamini were surprised to see her. Both Bathabile and
Families, spouses, children, and other acquaintances paid tribute to the late former Mayor Mpho Moerane. He'll be sadly missed! "My life was rocked to its core when you left me. For the first time in my life, I had to bury you at the age of 17 "That's what Mpho Moerane's daughter stated while she was paying respect to her late father. It was a touching tribute to her "hun" Mpho Moerane's memorial service on Sunday, delivered by his widow. Fikile Moerane, speaking through a friend, talked about the excellent times they had together and the acts of service. One of their four children, Neo, came to Fikile with a cup of coffee and remarked, "I hope it's just how dad used to make it." Fikile was overcome with emotion as she recounted this story.
Mpho Phalatse, the current mayor of Johannesburg, was also given the opportunity to pay her respects. Phalatse's admission that she thinks she may be the next victim moved everyone. The ANC is purging its ranks, but is this a deliberate strategy? Phalatse uttered these statements in response to the inexplicable deaths of the former mayors of the metropolis she currently serves. In the span of a year, three Mayors have been killed in that metro area.
