Family of former mayor Mpho Moerane slams death reports, says he’s well and recovering in hospital

Must read

THE former Johannesburg mayor Mpho Moerane has condemned false reports circulating in the media about his death. 

Earlier last week, Moerane was hospitalized after being seriously injured in a car accident in Johannesburg.

“We want to confirm that Moerane is not dead, he is still in hospital where he is stable and recovering,” said businessman and family spokesperson Mike Maile in a statement.

“We appeal to all those who are spreading the fake news announcing his death to desist from such as their actions are hurtful to the family, friends and Moerane’s comrades. Those behind spreading of the fake news are heartless people hellbent on causing unimaginable pain to the family which is concentrating all its efforts towards working together with medical professionals to nurse Moerane back to good health.”

Moerane was the mayor of Joburg for a month last year after the death of his predecessor, Jolidee Matongo, in September following a car accident.

He was also the ANC’s mayoral candidate for Joburg during last November’s local government elections.

Moerane was reportedly supposed to contest the position of ANC Joburg regional chairperson at the party’s Johannesburg elective conference this weekend.
