Three protection officers die in road accident


In the early morning hours of Monday 25 January four members of the protection detail of Mkhondo’s Mayor, Vusi Motha, were involved in a fatal car accident.

Apparently, the men were busy executing their duties when their car crashed with another vehicle. Three of the four men, unfortunately, were declared dead on the scene and one survived his injuries. The details surrounding the accident are unknown and it is unclear where it took place and what caused it.

The community would like to convey their deepest condolences to the families and friends of Mr Mkhaliphi, Mr Khumalo and Mr Mdletshe. They were pillars of the community and it is truly a big loss.

“Those who knew the gentlemen will tell you that they have always beamed in excitement whenever they passionately articulated their love for their jobs”- Mayor Vusi Motha
