Kgagudi Marutanyane was banished, on the same day as Lot Kgagudi Maredi, from Geluks Location, Sekhukhuneland, Lydenburg District, Transvaal [now Lydenburg, Mpumalanga] to Gxulu Location, Keiskammahoek District, [Eastern Province, now Eastern Cape], in November 1957.

 He was considered to be a loyal supporter of Maredi’s and likely to succeed Maredi if he was incapacitated. It was alleged that he intimidated those who worked with state operatives and had negative attitudes towards government. 

His banishment order was withdrawn on 28 July 1962.
