The UDM candidate councilors were on their way to campaign for the party in the area when their vehicle overturned, leaving three dead and one in a critical condition.

Holomisa has praised the trio, and said the councilors died with their boots on while campaigning towards the local government elections.

“These are very hard working candidates; UDM has experienced a serious loss of good individuals. Don’t ask me if there was foul play. Let’s leave that one to the police. That’s a very difficult question to answer,” a devastated Holomisa told DRUM.

He said, “It is very difficult for us as the UDM; we hope that those left to campaign towards these elections succeed in honor of councilors that lost their lives,” he said.

Holomisa added that they were still waiting for more information from the Police.

“Names will be announced as soon as all the family members are notified,” said Holomisa.
