The Executive Mayor of the City of Johannesburg, Geoffrey Makhubo,  passed away on Friday after contracting COVID-19. He was hospitalised last month for COVID-19 complications.

In June, Makhubo urged Joburg residents to take all necessary precautions to remain safe and to avoid infection. This includes strict adherence to non-medical practices of wearing masks, sanitizing regularly and minimising movement in line with the Level 4 restrictions announced by the President.

Gauteng has the highest number of Covid 19 cases. The active cases in South Africa exceeded 2 million mark.

Makhubo was appointed Joburg mayor in December 2019.
