DURBAN – The murder trial of former African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) Secretary General Sindiso Magaqa is due to start on Monday morning in the Pietermaritzburg High Court.

Magaqa was shot in 2017 in his home town of Umzimkhulu in KwaZulu-Natal and died in hospital.

But his family claimed he was poisoned by the perpetrators of his assassination attempt.

The four men charged with her murder also face charges of conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder, malicious damage to property and unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition.

The trial is scheduled to run until August 12, 2022.

Mbulelo Mpofana, Sibonelo Myeza, Mlungisi Ncalane and Sibusiso Ncengwa – these are the men accused of killing Magaqa.

They are to be tried in Pietermaritzburg High Court from Monday morning.

Magaqa was shot several times while sitting in his car with his colleagues, Nontsikelelo Mafa and Jabulile Msiya – all of whom were advisers to Mzimkhulu at the time.

Although they all survived, Magaqa later died at Chief Albert Luthuli Hospital in Durban after complaining of stomach problems.

Earlier this year, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) announced that three of the defendants had been released on bail of R5,000 each, while another, who had not requested bail, remained behind. bars.

The case is expected to continue until next month.
