...MAGAGULA FAMILY HAS NO POLITICAL ASPIRATIONS
National Commissioner, Isaac Magagula’s family do not take kindly to the smear campaign whereby he is accused of warring with a Member of Parliament.
Identifying a certain individual as the police boss’ antagoni s t , Mduduzi ‘ CeeDee’ Magagula sends out a stern warning that he should keep away from his family as they have no interest in contesting elections.
“He is going around spreading lies. We know of hi s shenanigans because his peers tell us,” says the younger Magagula.
Recounting how t he a ni mosity from the MP started, he says the legislator was advised after the accident which claimed the lives of several Imbali about his irresponsible comments which he made whil e bei ng interviewed by S outh A f r i c an media; “This was done in a polite manner,
ifying Magagula, change the laws through their legislative representatives as rumour mongering is damaging.
He alleges that the real issue is not about age as there are people who wanted to operate t heir evil unabated by Magagula’s leadership.
To emphasise that the issue of age is not pronounced, he states that some judges who operate in local courtrooms are older than the national commissioner, yet nobody says anything; “As old as Magagula I believe, and he took tion to it.”
He alleges that the MP then used his privilege of being in Parliament and turned on the NatCom by stating that he was too old to be in the position he is in.
Things allegedly came to a head when the MP was arrested for alleged fraud. excep-
“He went around telling people that the person behind his arrest was Magagula due to his political aspiration,” the son alleges.
On the other hand, when the MP in question was asked about this, he dismissed it as fictional. He stated that he was aware of the reputation he has of being at l oggerheads with the national comm issioner and does not lose his sleep over it.
The son says his father did not even know the people who complained about the MP leading to his arrest; “How does he c oncl ude t hat
is, he is not slacking and has been doing a very good job.”
He warns that the politicking and speculation that happens behind appointments is dangerous.
“There are people encouraging animosity by telling them they are being earmarked for certain positions; they are causing discord and should stop talking hogwash.”
He s ays it would be disheartening if people who worked as Their Majesties’ advisors Magagula knew of his dealings and further encouraged the complainant to lay a charge against him? How does he know the people that he owes enough to encourage them to go to the police?”
He says the comment by the MP after his arrest to the effect that the incarceration was politically motivated is in line with the alleged rumour mongering which states that they have political aspirations.
“My mother does not want to contest for elections, none of my siblings have shown inclination towards wanting to contest elections because this is supposed to be as per the decision of the people, not aspiring politicians doing.”
He warns that the MP should know that their home area (name withheld) is not his fiefdom to dictate what should happen there.
“My father tried to extend an olive branch to him and called him for a meeting in order for their differences to be trashed, instead of countering the request with a meeting place of his own, he decided to ignore all invitations while giving excuses such as he was in mourning after the recent death of businessman Zeeman,” alleges ‘CeeDee’.
went about talking about people being considered whereas appointments have not been decided.
He warns that those who claim to love the institution of the monarchy but do not want to work with Magagula should check themselves and realise they are not hurting him, but authorities of the country.
“If police officers also feel as though he is too old, why don’t they resign and look for another boss who will suit their preferences?”
