- This has divided the ANC with Ace Magashule at odds with President Cyril Ramaphosa over the vote
Ace Magashule is getting a lot of hate online from social media users as #RemoveAceMagashule trends on Twitter.
Tweeps took the opportunity to share their opinions on Ace and what they think his fate should be using the hashtag.
President Cyril Ramaphosa and Ace Magashule are reported to be at odds with each other over the recent vote by the ANC's recent vote to launch an inquiry into Public Protector Busisiwe Mkwebane's fitness to hold office.
The ANC NEC meeting this weekend does not have Mkwebane on the agenda but it believes that the tensions the vote created would dominate discussions.
Twitter users posted their thoughts on the matter:
"Daughter of Nkosazana Zuma in an all-out mission to support the very corrupt Ace Magashule. These Zuma’s are always on the side of corruption. Zuma’s can never say no to corruption. #RemoveAceMagashule"
"People will realize that Ace Magashule is not even close to being powerful like Zuma was in 2005. No comparison! Just look at the crowd that is supporting him outside Luthuli house. Zuma had all ANC structures under his spell & was unstoppable. #ANCNEC #RemoveAceMagashule."
"The writing is on the wall for Ace Magashule as highly respected former President Thabo Mbeki is said to have lambasted the office of the Secretary-General saying it’s at its weakest. Seems like the ANC will Remove Ace Magashule #RemoveAceMagashule."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) spokesman Carl Niehaus shared a video on Twitter of himself speaking about the African National Congress MPs who did not vote in the matter with Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane.
Mkhwebane has been making headlines after it was revealed that a Parliamentary inquiry would be launched into her fitness to hold office. Niehaus has no commended the 62 MPs who did not attend the vote.
The MKMVA spokesperson also told those who had voted in favour of the inquiry that they voted in favour of the enemy and referred to the situation as 'treasonous'.
