Mpho Moerane was involved in a ghastly car accident that eventually claimed his life.

Moerane had been driving along Bowling Avenue, on his way back home in Bryanston, when his car hit a rock.

Contradictory views opine the possibility of Moerane’s car being tampered with before he drove it. However, the former Mayor of Johannesburg hit a rock while driving and fell into coma.

He was rushed to the hospital but did not survive despite efforts from medical practitioners.
