EWN reporter Ziyanda Ngcobo shares the major political stories that happened in KwaZulu Natal in 2018.

As the year draws to an end, KwaZulu Natal has had its fair share of political stories that made headlines in 2018. EWN reporter Ziyanda Ngcobo shares some of the major political stories that happened in the province.

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

Ngcobo looked at the report from the Moerane Commission into political killings which was criticised for not being instructive enough.

Instead, for example, one of the recommendations was to professionalise the civil service but doesn't give the specifications as to how the state is supposed to do that. People wanted to hear more about how police and law enforcement agencies were going to clean themselves and how they were going to effectively deal with political killings in the province.

Ngcobo also covered the political killing of former African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) secretary general Sindiso Magaqa and says this story was about more than just his assassination.

It was about how law enforcement agencies are being fictionalised and the internal faction within the ruling party paralysed state organs.

Ngcobo believes the story of Magaqa highlighted the scourge of political killings in KZN.

It took a high profile person dying for people to sit up and take notice of the rampant killings in this province.
