Msiya‚ who was injured when unknown gunmen opened fire on the vehicle in which they were sitting with Magaqa‚ said although she had been provided with bodyguards and felt relatively safe‚ she would not feel "100 percent safe" until all those who were involved in Magaqa’s slaying were brought to book.
"We are praying that the police try and convict whoever was responsible for this‚" Msiya added.
Police minister Bheki Cele’s spokesperson Reneilwe Serero confirmed Ndobe’s arrest.
"I can confirm that a senior official from Harry Gwala District municipality has been arrested. At this stage I can not divulge the name until their court appearance which will be in the next 48 hours‚” she said.
ANC secretary in KwaZulu-Natal Mdumiseni Ntuli said the party was shocked. "It's very shocking. It is a setback for the ANC."
Magaqa died in September 2017 at Inkosi Albert Luthuli Hospital from gunshot wounds after the assassination attempt two months earlier.
