Police minister, Fikile Mbalula paid tribute to former ANC Youth League secretary-general Sindiso Magaqa.
Magaqa succumbed to injuries sustained when he and two other ANC councillors were shot in July at a spaza shop in Mzimkhulu, south of Durban, in July.

I want to evoke this call by our former President, that it is enough. All these killings must come to an end,” said Mbalula.
“We condemn in the strongest terms the use of violence as a way of settling differences between our people. It has always been a held view by the majority of our people that only dialogue can resolve our differences, not violence or confrontation,” added Mbalula.
The minister sent his condolences to the family of Magaqa and the ANC.
