‘MA­GAQA ‘ASKED GOD TO SAVE HIM’

Sunday Observer - - NEWS - WAZULU NA­TAL Times Live

K- As Sindiso Ma­gaqa clung to life af­ter he was crit­i­cally wounded in a failed as­sas­si­na­tion at­tempt‚ he had “seen God“. Ma­gaqa‚ the for­mer sec­re­tary-gen­eral of the ANC Youth League‚ re­layed his vi­sion to his pas­tor who had vis­ited his bed­side in the Dur­ban hos­pi­tal.

Ma­gaqa and two oth­ers were wounded when the car they were trav­el­ling in was rid­dled with bul­lets in a hit-style at­tack in Umz­imkhulu in July. He sur­vived the at­tack‚ but last week died in hos­pi­tal. His two col­leagues sur­vived but are still in hos­pi­tal.

Ad­dress­ing hun­dreds of mourn­ers oyes­ter­day‚ Pas­tor John­son Bavu said that Ma­gaqa had wept in his hos­pi­tal bed.

I went to see him and he wept and said that he had seen our God‚” he said.

He pur­port­edly told the cler­gy­man that as he lay wounded in the bul­let-rid­dled car‚ he begged God to spare his life.

“He told me that he asked God to save him‚” he added. Among the mourn­ers were ANC Trea­surer Zweli Mkhize‚ Nkosazana DlaminiZuma and Fi­nance Min­is­ter Malusi Gi­gaba.
