Nqaba Bhanga, the mayor of Nelson Mandela Bay, was critically injured in a car accident in Gqeberha on Saturday, and two persons were murdered. At 23:30, a collision happened at the intersection of St Leonard’s Drive and Uitenhage Road. Bhanga’s birthday had arrived.

A grey Audi and a navy blue Mercedes Benz collided, according to police spokesman Captain Sandra Janse van Rensburg. At the moment, he was behind the wheel of his own car.

Bhanga would have surgery to repair internal bleeding, according to Mayoral spokeswoman Leander Kruger. He stated that a culpable homicide case was under investigation. Bhanga, the DA’s provincial leader, has been nominated as a mayoral candidate if the party wins a majority on the council.
