Magashule may put the ANC in a compromising position - Lukhona Mnguni

Free State Premier and African National Congress (ANC) Secretary General, Ace Magashule on Monday said allegations that he is linked to corrupt dealings at Estina Dairy Farm must be left to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).

In 2013, Magashule announced the provincial government’s partnership with Estina.

Reports later surfaced that the money invested into the farm was used at a Gupta wedding and that this is also being investigated.

Magashule has also defended his son Gift Magashule, who is also allegedly involved.

Political analyst Lukhona Mnguni says if Magashule is implicated, this may put the ANC in a compromising position.

If he then gets implicated, it then again puts the ANC in a very compromising position of having to deal with one of its senior politicians.

Of course we have always known that there are relationships between his son and the Guptas but how far that extends in terms of monetary benefit to him as the then premier is still to be tested.

I think the course of the law must also be allowed to take action and we must not put the cart before the horse. By mere fact of allegations we also have to make sure that all evidence is brought to the fore, so that people are prosecuted and taken to account, but we have to allow the law to take its course as well and not conduct a court of public opinion.
