As President Cyril Ramaphosa tries to calm troubled waters after Ace Magashule's comments on the nationalisation of the South African Reserve Bank, Jacob Zuma has stepped in to stir the pot.
Former president Jacob Zuma has joined in the drama over the nationalisation of the SA Reserve Bank.
Zuma took to social media to stir an already boiling pot, asking if there is policy uncertainty within the ANC.
Briefly.co.za reported that senior party officials had been squabbling following comments made by ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule after the party's lekgotla over the weekend.
Zuma had posted a photo, reminding Ramaphosa of resolutions taking at the last ANC elective conference, where it had been agreed on that private shareholders in the Reserve Bank were a 'historical anomaly'.
Meanwhile, President Cyril Ramaphosa has released a statement dubbing the nationalisation of the central bank as something that simply was not prudent in SA's current economic climate.
Ace Magashule had retweeted this statement, encouraging those who enjoyed putting their opinion on social media to adhere to the comments made:
"All ANC members who love tweeting and expressing themselves are to adhere to this line of march."
