Joseph Mabuza, the spokesperson for Mpumalanga's safety and security MEC Pat Ngomane was killed in a crash on Sunday, a colleague said. 

"It is so sad," said the premier's spokesperson Zibonele Mncwango.

Mabuza is understood to have been travelling on a motorbike near the Lebombo border post on Sunday afternoon when a vehicle made a u-turn in front of him, and there was a crash. 

Mncwango said Premier Refilwe Mtsweni and all of Mabuza's communications colleagues were shocked by the news.
