JOHANNESBURG - The ruling party called out suspended African National Congress Secretary-General Ace Magashule for attending the Economic Freedom Fighters’ Freedom Charter Day rally in Kliptown recently.
Magashule was seen rubbing shoulders with the Red Berets top dogs, including Dali Mpofu and Marshall Dlamini, when the party shared a clip of the event on social media.
The suspended secretary-general turned heads with his attendance at the EFF event. According to The Citizen, Magashule’s appearance left South Africans questioning if he would be joining the political party. The ANC’s Free State interim provincial committee described the conduct as irresponsible and negative.
