The Mokonyamas of Mokopane are mourning the death of two of their family members who died following a fatal accident on the morning of Thursday, 12 April along the N1 South.

The accident took place a few kilometres outside of Polokwane. 

The families of Rubben Mokonyama (46), from Mahwelereng and Mummy Mokonyama (36), from Masehlaneng Village, positively identified the deceased family members. 

It is alleged that a police vehicle with two police officers inside, was travelling from south to the north when it collided head-on with a VW Polo with four occupants inside.

Limpopo police spokesperson, Lieutenant-Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, said two occupants from the sedan vehicle died instantly, while the other occupants and the two officers sustained serious injuries.

The injured were rushed to hospital for further observation and treatment.

Meanwhile, the other two occupants from the sedan vehicle and one of the police officers were on Tuesday 17 April still recuperating in hospital. 

“The other member of the SAPS was treated and discharged,” Ngoepe said.
