- Ace Magashule remains adamant that he's not plotting against President Ramaphosa
- Magashule said he will face the state capture inquiry commission if he is implicated of wrongdoing
- The ANC secretary-general added that it would give him a chance to tell the commission some other 'stories'
Secretary-general of the African National Congress, Ace Magashule, doesn't shy back from testifying at the state capture inquiry.
In fact, he said on Friday that he would be willing to testify - if he is ever implicated of wrongdoing.
Magashule was addressing the members of Sasco (the South African Students' Congress) in Free State when he said this.
This comes after President Ramaphosa addressed those who “meet in dark corners” and plot to divide the ruling party.
Magashule was linked to an alleged plot to dethrone President Ramaphosa but denied that his meeting in Durban with Jacob Zuma involved making any plans to oust Ramaphosa.
Briefly.co.za reported that Magashule, ANC's Meokgo Matuba, Supra Mahumapelo and KZN's ANCYL secretary Thanduxolo Sabelo all met with Zuma.
The secretary-general said to the cheering students that nobody could stop him from meeting with Zuma.
He added he would even invite "president Jacob Zuma" to come and talk to the students, according to a report by News24.
Magashule said that no ANC leadership could stop him - and many others - from meeting with the former president - whom he still calls president.
Magashule then threw shade at President Ramaphosa, saying he is not a product of white people or capital, referring to the president's fortune he gained through business over the years.
There are people who are products of the white man in the ANC.
The ANC secretary-general then said he will testify at the state capture inquiry and added it would give him a chance to tell other stories to the community.
What stories he was referring to, only Magashule will know. Unless he does get called to testify at the commission and shares his stories with the rest of South Africa.
