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.

I think from the mother, Madlamini, I think she is realising that it is not impossible for this to have happened and at the same time doesn't want to believe that because the family wants to maintain that he was killed because he was about to expose corruption.

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.

That particular aspect speaks to how ANC has failed to deal with individuals that give them a bad name As much as the ANC wants to separate themselves from government, they are intertwined, as there are corruption and rampage in municipalities led by the ANC, it is very difficult to separate the party from that image...
