A MEMORIAL service for Nelson Mandela Bay councillors Mxolisi Gumenge, Phumeza Lose and Noncedo Ngqondi who were killed in a taxi accident on Sunday will take place tomorrow (January 20).
The service will take place at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) Missionvale Campus from 10am to 3pm, according to municipal spokesman Kupido Baron.
Baron said the civic funeral for Lose (Ward 55) and Gumenge (Ward 26) would take place on Tuesday January 24, also at the Missionvale Campus, from 9am to 2pm. Ngqondi (Ward 15) would also receive a civic funeral, to be held from 9am to 1pm at the Nangoza Jebe Hall on Wednesday.
The three, who represented the ANC in the Nelson Mandela Bay Council, were part of a group travelling back to Port Elizabeth after attending classes at the Nelson Mandela Law School at the Fort Hare University’s East London campus on Sunday. They were studying towards certificates in Local Government Law and Public Administration.
