Poisonous Bullets: The Silent Betrayal of Sindiso Magaqa (Part 3)

There are still no answers about who may have ordered former ANCYL secretary Sindiso Magaqa's death or what the motive may have been.

In the final part of her three part series, Eyewitness News reporter Ziyanda Ngcobo sits down with Magaqa's mother who speaks on the days leading up to her son's funeral and the politics that prevented one of his closest friends, Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema, from being a part of the send off.

What I wanted for Sindiso's funeral was peace. I said if Julius is hurt because I said he can't speak at the funeral. If he does come, he can come and carry Sindiso's coffin as one of his friends. I was avoiding the chaos that would have erupted because Sindiso belongs to the ANC.

Nearly a year after his death, family relatives share their disappointment at the lack of support from the African National Congress (ANC) saying a promise made by the party to start a trust fund for Magaqa's children has not been fulfilled.

In an interview with Ngcobo, Magaqa's brother claims the family was offered a R2 million trust fund on the condition that Malema be barred from speaking at the funeral.

The movement dangled a trust fund of R2 million, provided that Malema does not speak here at home or at the funeral.

The ANC has however denied and suggests a family feud prevented the party from assisting.
