Gauteng MEC Economic Development Parks Tau says the late Mfo Maran was committed to transforming the lives of those living in unhappy communities.
Tau paid tribute to the late former mayor of Joburg at a memorial service in Alexandra, north of Johannesburg.
Muran died Wednesday from injuries sustained after a car accident.
Tau says it’s a tough time. But everyone who worked with him should carry the baton and continue where Maran left off.

Tau described Murano’s death as a hole in the ANC in Gauteng.
“Mfo Maran is leaving at a difficult time when he joins his predecessors in less than a year. We need to fight the pain of losing loyal staff while ensuring fundamental socio-economic transformations, during the process of renewal in the movement, to transform the lives of the historically disadvantaged. ”
“Dedicated and generous leader”
Speaker after speaker praised Merano as a dedicated and generous leader. Mike Mongwe of Cosatu says, “It’s time to celebrate the life of Mfo Marana. We are here to support the Moeranes. The last time I spoke to Muran was during the last phase of the 2021 local election campaign. He defended the rights of the working class. “
Bongi Dlamini of SACP says: “We extend our condolences to the Muran family. Like the SACP in the province and Johannesburg, we can’t say we understand because we lost two leaders to the Moerane. It’s not pleasing. The struggle for the working class must continue.
Maran will be buried next Sunday.
Our deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of the former mayor of Johannesburg, #MphoMoerane. Akuhlanga kungehlanga. Lalani ngenxeba.
It is always so incredibly sad when lives are lost in such a tragic way.
