ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule's supporters have been warned to not undermine the ANC's leadership. ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe says that strong action will be taken against Ace's supporters who undermine the ANC's ability to lead.
This was on Friday after some of Magashule's supporters were seen burning t-shirts that had President Cyril Ramaphosa's face on them.
“The national officials of the ANC have already issued a statement to the members of the ANC on how they are really supposed to conduct themselves around this," said Mabe.
Mabe also said that Magashule's supporters had been warned prior that if they were going to come and show their support, they were to do so in a respectful manner.
Magashule was granted bail of R200 000 after appearing at the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court and is expected to return to court in February 2021. He faced charges in relation to the corruption of an alleged irregular awarding of the R255-million asbestos roofing assessment tender.
#FeesMustFall advocate Mcebo Dlamini has come out and said that he will support Ace Magashule through everything.
“Remember the secretary-general is the heart of the ANC. The core when you talk of the political party, the SG is the mantle, the aorta of the movement. When you attack the aorta, you’re killing the ANC." he said.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Magashule was released on R200 000 bail after his turbulent first appearance in court. Ace Magashule handed himself over to the Hawks on Friday morning, where he was placed under arrest as his supporters gathered outside to show their loyalty to the top ANC official.
The ANC Secretary-General was processed before heading to the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court to be formally charged. Magashule is now facing multiple charges including fraud, corruption and money laundering.
