GEORGE NEWS - The man who died after his vehicle left the road on the Outeniqua Pass over the weekend, has been identified as the 41-year-old Fane Setlogalo.
Setlogalo was employed as a network technologist for the Western Cape Government and was on his way home to Cape Town after doing work in the Southern Cape.
“He was reported missing in Cape Town on Friday 9 October after he did not arrive at his place of work as expected,” said Southern Cape police spokesperson, Sgt Chris Spies.
“This vehicle was traced through a tracker device and located in the Outeniqua Pass. A search and rescue team was dispatched to the area where the vehicle was found at the bottom of the mountain on Sunday afternoon.”
Setlogalo’s body was recovered from the wreck by Metro Rescue Services the same evening and the vehicle was recovered by J&B Towing Services the following day.
It is alleged that Setlogalo’s bakkie left the road after he lost control of the vehicle on Friday during heavy rains.
