- Ace Magashule recently headed online to share some snaps of himself and former president Thabo Mbeki
- In the caption of his post, Magashule shared that the two of them had a productive meeting
- Many South Africans did not waste any time heading to the comment section to share their thoughts on the snaps
Ace Magashule recently reached the end of the 30 days that he was given to resign from his position as an ANC member - and yes, he still refuses to back down. The beleaguered politician recently headed online to share a few snaps that left Mzansi with raised eyebrows.
Taking to Twitter, Magushule shared some snaps that feature himself and former president of South Africa, Thabo Mbeki. In another snap, Magashule poses with deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe.
"Great engagements I had today with President Mbeki and Deputy President Motlanthe," he captioned the post.
Naturally, Mzansi had a lot to say and as usual, they did not hold back. Read a few of their interesting comments below:
"You may have great engagements with whomever? But the question remains when are you stepping aside? It's time up! #AceMagashule"
"The mandalas you met are nothing compared to the arrogant thief you're worshipping. Step aside, clear your name then come & complain to them if ANC doesn't open the door even after you're cleared by courts. Any resistance will prove that you looted FS province."
"@Magashule_Ace, Nobhala, our last hope. Please do not step aside, we still need you. PLEASE!!!"
Briefly News earlier reported that the 30-day deadline is over for those ANC members who are facing criminal charges to step aside and the ANC is facing a watershed moment. A number of ANC members are subject to this policy including Secretary-General Ace Magashule.
According to eNCA, the National Executive Committee (NEC) has said that those who do not comply will be suspended from the party. The ANC has said that no one will have to step aside yet which could have serious consequences for the party.
News24 reported that Magashule has held meetings with Thabo Mbeki and Kgalema Motlanthe and it appears that the ANC is offering Magashule a reprieve. Jeff Radebe and Lindiwe Sisulu said that the issue would be discussed at the next NEC meeting.
