COSATU mourns the death of former ANCYL Secretary General Cde Sindiso Magaqa
The Congress of South African Trade Unions is saddened and shocked to hear about the death of former ANCYL Secretary General Cde Sindiso Magaqa. We send our heartfelt condolences to his family, colleagues and friends. It is saddening to see such a young leader losing his life as a result of political intolerance.
Cde Magaqa will be remembered as a loyal and a forthright cadre of the movement, who served the ANC with integrity and never wavered in his fight for social justice. He left an indelible mark as a young leader. He was a born leader and did not need to hold a position or have a title to serve both his organisation and his community.
The ANC has lost a loyal cadre and an independent thinker. The people of Umzimkhulu and Ibis in particular have lost a beloved son, who championed social justice and economic transformation.
We hope that his death will spur the government at national and provincial level to attend to the ongoing political assassinations in KZN. The spate of political killings in the province has reached crisis levels and a solution is needed soon.
We shall forever remain indebted to him for his contribution in championing economic transformation without fear or favour. As COSATU, we lower our banners in honour of this fallen cadre and we hope that his death will not be in vain. We hope that law enforcement agencies will work harder to bring the perpetrators to face justice. We also hope that ANC cadres will continue to champion economic transformation and fight fraud and corruption.
