Polokwane - Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale has been booked off for a week after being involved in a car accident, his office said on Friday.

Spokesperson Mashadi Mathosa said he was discharged in the morning from the Polokwane Mediclinic, where he was treated for injuries following Thursday's accident.

"The premier is recovering well, but has stitches in his right ear from minor injuries he sustained when his car overturned at Gasekgopo Village, on his way from Tzaneen to Polokwane on Thursday afternoon," Mathosa said.

Mathale's driver, who was admitted to the same hospital, was treated and discharged on the same day. Mathosa said she was not sure what type of car the premier was in.

Democratic Alliance leader in the province Desiree van der Walt wished Mathale a speedy recovery.

ANC provincial spokesperson Makhondelale Mathiba said: "Our chairperson is recovering well from the minor injuries and remains in high spirits."

The province's transport department is expected to unveil its Easter Arrive Alive campaign on the N1 outside Polokwane on Tuesday.
