Mpho Moerane rose through the ranks, from the ANC's branches in Alexandra, to become City of Johannesburg Mayor, and he was well liked along the way, writes James de Villiers.

Former City of Johannesburg mayor and regional treasurer of the ANC in the city, Mpho Moerane, will be remembered as "kind", "entrepreneurial" and "multi-skilled", his friends and family said on Thursday morning.
