Mpho Moerane, a prominent member of the African National Congress and a former mayor of Johannesburg, died just days after being injured in a tragic car accident.
ANC comrade Moerane was scheduled to compete for the job of regional conference chairperson in the Greater Johannesburg region until he was injured in an accident last week.
He was sent to Milpark Hospital's intensive care unit, where his battle for survival proved futile.
Even though his family appeared to be inconsolable, the look on their faces indicated they had been crying for some time. When the ANC heavyweight's tragic death began to spread on social media, critics said it was true that he was battling for his life.
Second ANC heavyweight and former mayor of Johannesburg Mpho Moerane has been killed in a terrible tragedy.
The death of Jolidee Matongo, who had just been mayor of Johannesburg for a month, has prompted many to ask what is going on in the African National Congress (ANC).
In the hospital, the ANC member succumbed to his injuries.
Former Johannesburg mayor Mpho Moerane passed away at Milpark Hospital at 17:54 p.m. His loved ones were by his side when he passed away.
Moerane's family announced his death through a spokesperson, Mike Maike, in the wake of the former Johannesburg mayor's tragic loss.
On Wednesday night, he declared his death. After a car collision last week, Moerane was taken to the hospital in Johannesburg's suburb of Sunninghill.
