Poisonous Bullets: Was it a love affair that killed Sindiso Magaqa?

EWN reporter Ziyanda Ngcobo has been working on a three part series documentary, trying to find answers to the death of former ANCYL secretary general Sindiso Magaqa,

Although there are speculations arising from his killing, what really happened remains a mystery to his family and fellow South Africans.

According to Ngcobo, his family believes he was poisoned while in hospiatl after he was shot and those who worked close to him in the ANC believe it was an assassination because he was about to reveal corruption dealings withing the party.

But now there is a new revelation to this mystery, that of a love affair. While working on the story Ngcobo discovers that there are those who believe that Magaqa's death was due to a love triangle gone sour.

Although his companions knew about the affair, it seems it was kept away from his family.

We also heard from Thabiso who is also Sindiso's close friend that this is used by those responsible for Sindiso's death as a smokescreen and a destruction from what really happened.
