What a sad evening. Rest in Peace Comrade Mayor of The City of Johannesburg Jolidee Matongo. He passed on in a terrible car accident. He was with President Cyril Ramaphosa and Premier David Makhura today doing Local Government Elections Campaign for the African National Congress in Soweto. He was elected and appointed as a Mayor on the 10th of August 2021. At the time of his passing on he was a Mayor and still pursuing his Masters Degree in Public Management at Management College of Southern Africa(MANCOSA). May God be with his family in these sad and painful times. A big tree has fallen. Siyibolekiwe impilo.
NOT AN OBITUARY .
