Mthembu's brother killed in crash

Johannesburg - ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu's brother was killed in a car accident in Witbank on Wednesday night.

"Mandla [Mthembu] and two of his colleagues died after a truck they were travelling in from work collided with another truck yesterday afternoon on the N4, near Emalahleni," ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe said on Thursday.

Mthembu, 40, and the other two men were employees of Mpumalanga's public works, roads and transport department. Details on how the accident occurred were not clear.

The ANC sent its condolences to the Mthembu family and expressed its regret and shock at the accident.
