- President Cyril Ramaphosa recently responded to Ace Magashule's letter in which he "suspends" the president
- Ramaphosa has said that he was shocked and dismayed at corruption-accused Magashule
- While the suspension is impossible, Ramaphosa said that he will leave it to be dealt with by the NEC
President Cyril Ramaphosa has finally issued a response to Ace Magashule's letter in which he suspends the president who had given him 30 days to step aside as an ANC official following many allegations of corruption within the government.
Ramaphosa, who confirmed that he received Magashule's letter, says that he was both shocked and appalled by presumably, Magashule's audacity. He also said that he will leave the matter to be dealt with by the NEC.
Ace Magashule's battle continues as he recently stated that he would no longer remain silent as he alleged that state resources were being used against him and his allies. Magashule did not give any names.
Magashule stated that he stayed in his position as African National Congress Secretary-General because he had appealed the ruling party's decision to have him suspended. Magashule alleged that he had suspended President Cyril Ramaphosa due to the CR17 campaign, Briefly News earlier reported.
The defiant Magashule called EWN on Wednesday evening in order to clear up any and all confusion over the suspension letters which were addressed to President Ramaphosa. Magashule stated that he allegedly had backing from the NEC to suspend the president.
News24 reported that Duarte said the suspended SG said she did not have any authority to issue those letters. The ANC's Pule Mabe stated that they had noted Magashule's letter of suspension with regards to the president.
Meanwhile, Briefly News also reported that Ace Magashule was recently temporarily suspended by the ANC following his refusal to willingly step aside as an ANC member after he was accused of corruption within the government. Many local politicians have since shared their thoughts on the ANC's decision.
Mbuyiseni Ndlozi of the Economic Freedom Fighters simply shared a GIF of a child laughing as a response to the news while former DA leader Mmusi Maimane reshared an old video of himself in which he criticises the ANC.
"We don't have a Jacob Zuma problem, we have an ANC problem," Maimane can be heard saying in the clip.
