DA saddened by passing of Simba Mhere

February 2, 2015

The DA passes its deepest and most sincere condolences to the family and loved of Top Billing presenter, Simba Mhere, and his companion who tragically lost their lives in a road traffic accident early this morning.

According to reports, Mhere was on his way to OR Tambo airport, when another vehcle collided with his on William Nicol Drive in Johannesburg.

Born in Zimbabwe, Mhere spent almost his entire life in Gauteng, matriculating from Rand Park High School and obtaining BCom degree from the University of Johannesburg.

Since winning the presenter search competition in 2010, Mhere has become a household name in South Africa, and his gentle, humorous and easy-going manner destined him for greater things

It is a sad day for South Africans as we deal with this great loss.

May his soul rest in peace.
