ANC Secretary-General, Ace Magashule, fired shots at Tito Mboweni, Finance Minister.
Magashule was speaking at the ANC's 108th birthday rally when he spoke about party members who do not respect the decisions made by it.
In basic terms, Magashule said that such members are not as important.
"I have never talked about any names but I am just saying to members of the ANC wherever they are, those who don’t respect party decisions taken by the highest decision-making body, whoever you are, how important you are, it is not important because the ANC believes in collective leadership."

This came after Mboweni made it clear that he does not agree with the 2017 Nasrec resolution to nationalise the Reserve Bank.
This isn't the first time Mboweni got negative attention for his opinion.
Tito Mboweni suspected that he was beating a hornet's nest when he questioned why the ANC was moving forward with a resolution to nationalise the South African Reserve Bank.
Briefly.co.za reported that the finance minister had taken to social media to call for a debate on the issue.
But this hasn't stopped the ANC from criticising Mboweni for rebelling against party decisions. Spokesperson Pule Mabe says that leadership is expected to uphold resolutions undertaken by the ANC and uphold them, not voice their reservations on public platforms.
Even Floyd Shivambu reacted to Mboweni's stance. The EFF believes firmly in the motion.
