UMZIMKHULU - As speculation swirls over who might be responsible for the murder of Sindiso Magaqa, community members have been urged to come forward with any information that could assist with investigations.

The former ANC Youth League (ANCYL) secretary general was laid to rest yesterday in his hometown of Umzimkhulu.

He died in hospital last week after being shot in July.

During Magaqa's funeral, some speakers reflected the fearlessness that the 35 year old politician lived his life by.

At least two of the tributes referred to how his murder could have been ordered by someone in the ANC and is possibly linked to what has been described as rampant looting in the Umzimkhulu municipality.

His wife, Gugu, whose message was read out by a family member also shared her feelings of loss.

“God decided you are better off when you are with him.”

The KZN ANC leadership has committed to returning to the area to properly investigate claims made during the memorial and funeral services.
