Former Nelson Mandela Bay mayor Mongameli Bobani has died.

Bobani, who was admitted to hospital with Covid-19 three weeks ago and was on a ventilator, died at Life St George’s Hospital at about 6pm on Wednesday, his attorney Danie Gouws confirmed to HeraldLIVE.

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa on Wednesday said Bobani’s death was a big blow, not only to the party but also to the municipality.

Holomisa described Bobani as a “hard worker in the party and the municipality”.

“Whenever there were problems in the municipality even if there were electricity cuts or burst water pipes he would be the first one to arrive and even call ward councillors to attend to that,” he said.
