Police are investigating a case of culpable homicide after comedian and actor Joe Mafela’s death on Saturday night.
The multi-talented artist died in a car accident on the M1 close to Marlborough.
“The Ford Figo that Mr Mafela was driving, collided with an Isuzu bakkie and when paramedics arrived on scene, Mr Mafela was then declared fatal, there was just two vehicles involved, the damages were not much to the vehicles, and Mr Mafela did not sustain any obvious injuries that you could see,” said Johannesburg Metro Police’s Edna Mamonyane.
His family is still reeling from his sudden death.
Many South Africans have conveyed their condolences to the family while others paid tribute to the legend on social media.
