The ANC MP who died in a auto accident in Paarl on Tuesday has been identified as Timothy Khoza. "Khoza died in the bus next to me".

He said the surviving three members of the committee were receiving urgent medical attention.

Political parties have shared their condolences the families affected by the accident.

Parliament has not yet revealed the names of the MPs involved in the crash but says they belong to the Portfolio Committee on Basic Education.

The basic education committee was to visit several education districts in the Western Cape‚ mainly to monitor and oversee implementation of key priority programmes and intervention plans.

He said the three members were now receiving care at the Paarl Mediclinic. The Office of the ANC Chief Whip has contacted the provincial ANC leadership of the province the late comrade is from, and they are now on their way to inform the family.

ANC deputy chief whip Doris Dlakude travelled to Paarl to identify the MP who died.

The statement reads, "This happens a few days after we lost another ANC MP over the weekend". So, to the family, we want to wish them all the best and strength. This is indeed a very painful time for the ANC Parliamentary Caucus.

The Premier of the Northern Cape, Sylvia Lucas, has extended condolences to Parliament and the family of the National Assembly MP who died in a fatal accident this morning.

We wish those in hospital a speedy recovery.
