JOHANNESBURG – Former ANC MP Pule Mabe said the governing party can’t tell Sindiso Magaqa’s family not to allow Julius Malema to attend his funeral.

Magaqa, the former ANC Youth League Secretary General, was attacked in July and died last week. He will be laid to rest on 16 September 2017.


Former ANC MP, Pule Mabe, said that the family of Sindiso Magaqa had indicated that they want Malema to participate in the funeral proceedings and also want him to play a role in the funeral program.

Mabe added that the funeral is not an ANC rally.


The ANC Youth league of the 24th national conference collective is hosting a press conference where Magaqa's memory will be honoured.

The Magaqa family spokesperson will attend the conference.
