EFF leader, Julius Malema, has said that the best way to honour the death of Sindiso Magaqa would be to vote the ANC out of power.

Malema made the comments while addressing crowds at an EFF rally in KZN.

This came after the arrest of Harry Gwala district mayor, Mluleki Ndobe, in connection to the murder of Magaqa, who was the former ANC Youth League secretary.

Ndobe and three others appeared in court last week regarding Magaqa's murder, which took place in 2017, although there are reports that the charges against them have been provisionally withdrawn. 

Magaqa's death is one of the most high-profile of a spate of political killings in KwaZulu-Natal.

Malema went on to say that Magaqa was killed because he was trying to expose ANC corruption. He added that the corruption was beyond Ramaphosa's ability to fix.

He also mourned for Magaqa, whom he described as a friend.

Additionally, according to eNCA, Malema called for those responsible for Magaqa's death to receive jail time and slammed the ANC for its handling of the incident.

"The ANC has become a dog that is eating its own children," Malema said.
