A memorial service for former Johannesburg Mayor Mfo Murano will be held in Alexandra, north of Johannesburg, on Friday afternoon.
Muran died Wednesday after being hospitalized at Milpark Hospital after a car accident last week.
He has been unconscious since admission to the hospital.
Muran has replaced then-Yoburg Mayor Jolidi Matong, who also died in a car crash last year.
He held this position until last November’s local elections.
On Wednesday, various political parties honored the memory of the former mayor.
