The well-known head of traffic at the Madibeng municipality, Andrew January, died of COVID-19 complications on Sunday, 24 January.
January tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month and was reportedly hospitalised due to COVID-19 related complications.
He joined the Madibeng municipality in 2005 as manager for traffic and licencing services, a position he held until the time of his death.
“Mr January was one of the kindest and friendliest people I have met in a long time. He was always patient and ready to assist with any problems in his department. He will be sorely missed. We think of his family in this difficult time,” said Madibeng councillor, Elsa Lourens.
