Polokwane - Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale was recovering in hospital on Thursday following a car crash in the Ga-Sekgopo mountain area.

The premier was being driven from a government engagement when the accident occurred, said ANC provincial spokesperson Makondelele Mathivha.

"The ANC is happy that its provincial leader, who sustained minor injuries, is recovering well in hospital and remains in high spirits," said Mathivha.

According to police, Mathale's driver lost control of the car in rainy weather on the Moeketsi and Polokwane roads.

Mathiva said the premier was able to speak and doctors had confirmed he was "fine".

"We expect him to be released soon. He actually joked and begged us to tell everyone not to panic. The economic freedom revolution is still very much on.”
