Johannesburg - The three people killed in a light aircraft crash near Nagle Dam in KwaZulu-Natal were identified by Agri SA on Friday.

President of Agri SA Johannes Mller identified the victims as Jannie Boshoff, Jannie Kemp and Theuns van Rensburg who were all members of the KwaZulu-Natal Agricultural Union (Kwanalu) - an affiliate of Agri SA.

"They had attended the congress of Kwanalu. I spoke to them during the congress and their death is not only a loss for Kwanalu but also for Agri SA," said Mller.

They were killed on Thursday after their plane crashed in bushes and caught fire.

ER24 said the incident happened at around 17:30.

After arriving on the scene, three paramedics and a firefighter set out on foot to locate the aircraft, said ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson.

"After about an hour of walking up the mountain through dense bush, they arrived at the crash site, where they found the wreckage of a light fixed wing aircraft, extensively damaged..."

It was still unclear what caused the crash.
