ANC KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) chairperson Sihle Zikalala has promised to pressure on authorities to investigate the death of Sindiso Magaqa.
Magaqa was a former African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) secretary-general.
He was shot two months ago in Umzimkhulu in KZN along with two other ANC councillors.
Magaqa died of his wounds in hospital on Monday night.
The provincial ANC chair and ANC presidential hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma visited Magaqa's home for a prayer service, reports EWN's Ziyanda Ngcobo.
