Durban - Police have arrested a 38-year-old man for the murder of former ANC Youth League general secretary, Sindiso Magaqa.
Magaqa, a councillor at the Umzimkhulu municipality on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast died in a Durban hospital two weeks ago after being shot multiple times in July.
According to police sources, a 38-year old man who lives at the KwaMashu Hostel has been arrested in connection with Magaqa's death.
The man was arrested last month following a shootout with police along the N2.
It is alleged that he was one of a gang of men involved in a foiled cash heist on the N2, between Harding and Kokstad. Investigations and forensic evidence linked the man to Magaqa’s shooting and which led police to charge him with Magaqa's death. He is due in court soon.
