ROMER ANCYL secretary general and Umzimkhulu councillor, Sindiso Magaqa is to be buried in Umzimkhulu tomorrow.

Magaqa’s memorial service was held at his home in Ibisi on Thursday.

The youth of the Harry Gwala region in KZN and Alfred Nzo region in Eastern Cape remembered­ him at a memorial lecture in Mount Ayliff on Wednesday.

Alfred Nzo ANCYL spokesperson, Smangaliso Mtengwane said when Umzimkhulu was under the Eastern Cape Magaqa showed good leadership skills as he led in various sectors.

“Young people from Alfred Nzo region learnt a lot from Magaqa and his legacy will not die. He was a fearless leader who stood for the truth.”

Magaqa died last week in the InkosiAlbert Luthuli Hospital from wounds he sustained when he was shot in July.

Speaking at the lecture, Qiniso Ntozakhe, secretary of the Harry Gwala ANCYL encouraged young people to follow in Magaqa’s footsteps.

“Magaqa was a good leader - even when he was expelled from the ANC he did not join other political parties or leave politics, instead he showed power and bravery within the ANC. Magaqa­’s attack is not going to discourage young people from speaking the truth.”

Magaqa is survived by his wife and three children.
