“We are saddened by the unfortunate death of one of our dedicated public servants who served the department with honour and dignity. On behalf of the department, we wish to extend our sincerest condolences to his family and loved ones. In the same breath, we condemn this level of lawlessness and call for the speedy apprehension of these brazen criminals,” said MEC Chiloane.

Mr Mbhalati worked for the Labour Relations Unit in the Johannesburg South District and was responsible facilitating for labour related disputes at schools in the District.
