Durban - A year since the death of the former ANC Youth League leader Sindiso Magaqa, the Hawks have arrested a suspect in connection with his murder. Magaqa was killed after being shot at while sitting in his car with fellow councillors after attending an ANC branch executive meeting on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast.
At the time of his death, Magaqa was an ANC councillor at the Umzimkhulu Local Municipality. The former youth league secretary-general, along with fellow councillors Jabulile Mzizi and Nonsikelelo Mafa were wounded in a hail of bullets fired at Magaqa's car, in which the three were sitting after attending an ANC branch executive meeting at the Ncambeble Primary School.
Magaqa died from his injuries at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Hospital in Durban.
The Mail and Guardian reported that a suspect had been arrested earlier this week by the Hawks and was set to appear in the Umzimkhulu Magistrates Court on Thursday.
