Johannesburg - A man has died in an accident allegedly involving a blue light convoy in Pretoria on Friday.

Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba tweeted that it was  President Jacob Zuma's convoy and that the deceased, Solly Moutlana, was a friend of his. 

Presidency spokesperson Bongani Ngqulunga told News24 that Zuma was in East London on Friday. 

"The Presidency is unaware of any accident. However, President Zuma was not in Tshwane yesterday. He was in East London to attend the NCOP having flown from Cape Town the previous day. He has not been in Pretoria since Tuesday," Ngqulunga told News24. 

Mashaba tweeted that he was under the impression that blue light convoys were banned in Pretoria, unless under extreme circumstances.
