Mkhuhlu Plaza manager Norman Magagula has died after being shot outside his home
on Wednesday night, according to local sources. The attack occurred around halftime of
the Bafana Bafana and Nigeria soccer match.
Magagula was admitted to Rob Ferreira Hospital in Mbombela following the shooting,
but ultimately succumbed to his injuries this morning. The motive behind the brutal
attack remains unclear as police investigate the murder.
This killing is the latest in a series of violent crimes turning Mkhuhlu into a dangerous
battleground. Several other politicians and businesspeople have recently fallen victim to
gun violence in the area.
Magagula was a well-known figure in the community. Colleagues described him as a
kind and dedicated manager who took pride in his work at Mkhuhlu Plaza. He is
survived by his wife and young children.
Many Mkhuhlu residents fear for their safety and demand action from authorities to curb
the escalating bloodshed. However, increased police presence has so far failed to deter
the brazen attacks.
With violent crime terrorizing the town, many wonder if Mkhuhlu will ever return to being
the peaceful community it once was. Magagula’s murder serves as a tragic reminder
that more urgent measures are needed to restore law and order.
