LIVE: Mbalula pays respects to Magaqa family ahead of memorial service

The memorial service of former ANC Youth League (ANCYL) secretary-general Sindiso Magaqa was disrupted on Wednesday night as ANC members supporting Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa for the party's presidency clashed with Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma supporters.

When ANCYL secretary-general Njabulo Nzuza, took to the podium, Ramaphosa supporters booed him, threw water bottles and made gestures signalling that they wanted change.

News24 understands that they were not happy with Nzuza addressing mourners before former ANCYL deputy president Ronald Lamola.

On the programme, Nzuza was listed ahead of Lamola.When it was Lamola's turn to pay tribute, Dlamini-Zuma supporters sang over his speech, prompting organisers to increase the microphone's volume so that Lamola could be heard.
