Mayor is doing well

2014-02-20 00:00

MSUNDUZI Mayor Chris Ndlela is recovering well at home after being involved in an accident last week.

Speaking to The Witness by phone, Ndlela said he was slowly getting better and hoped to be back at work on Monday.

Ndlela was hospitalised when his VIP car was involved in a collision with a truck on the N3 last week on Monday. It is unclear what injuries he sustained, as neither he nor municipal manager Mxolisi Nkosi would comment on this aspect.

He was on his way to a Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs meeting in Durban, with two bodyguards, when, it is believed, a truck made a U-turn in the path of the leased BMW he was being driven in.

Deputy Mayor Thobani Zuma told The Witness he had spoken to Ndlela, who had offered his version of what had happened on the road.

“The mayor told me that the prop shaft of the truck came off, leading to the driver losing control. The truck then veered over to the front of the mayor’s car,” said Zuma.
