- ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule was offered a R10 million bribe for his participation in the 'asbestos heist'
- This is according to Mxolisio Dukwana, who was testifying at the probe into state capture
- Magashule, in the former MEC's opinion, is unfit to serve at Luthuli House and belongs in prison
Mxolisi Dukwana has turned up the heat as far as blowing the whistle on alleged corruption in the Free State is concerned at the state capture inquiry.
Briefly.co.za reported yesterday that the former economic development MEC in the province had challenged Magashule to test his allegations in court.
Now, Dukwana has blown the lid on what he referred to as the 'asbestos heist', a R255 million project that aimed to portray certain politicians as caring for those who lived in homes with asbestos roofing, but was really a cover to siphon public funds.
Dukwana alleges that Magashule was offered a R10 million bribe for the project he says was a 'brazen act of corruption' executed on the former premier's instructions, IOL reports.
eNCA reports that the former MEC insists that if law enforcement had done their job, Magashule would be in a cell, not leading the ANC:
“I submit that the involvement of Mr Magashule in this asbestos audit heist makes him unfit to hold public office or the office of the Secretary-General of the ANC."
