The ANC's Secretary-General, Ace Magashule, has publicly defended the party members who have been implicated in allegations of wrongdoing. According to him, they are innocent until proven guilty.
Ace Magashule, the ANC's Secretary-General, has come to the defence of party leaders who have been accused of wrongdoing, as reported on by eNCA.
This comes even after the ANC's Integrity Commission has given instructions that those accused must step aside and clear their names.
Magashule feels that accusations are just that - accusations, and that they aren't necessarily true.
"Allegations for me, are allegations, allegations are not the truth."
The Secretary-General was speaking at the 107th anniversary of the late ANC leader Walter Sisulu's birth in Bloemfontein when he shared his opinion.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Magashule said the allegations are just a way to try and stop the accused from moving forward.
'Leaders of the ANC must expect allegations against them because they're intended to stop them from moving forward in bettering the lives of our people."
"The truth must come out, the truth will be heard, and you guys don't want to accept the universal principle which happens to the entire world, innocent until proven otherwise."
