Ace Magashule suspended

Lester Kiewit interviews Pieter-Louis Myburgh, author of "Gangster State: Unravelling Ace Magashule’s Web of Capture".

The ANC suspended its corruption-charged Secretary-General Ace Magashule on Wednesday.

In response, a defiant Magashule claims he had suspended President Cyril Ramaphosa, despite not having a mandate from the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) to do so.

“As the ANC, we have suspended Cyril,” Magashule told Eyewitness News.

Only the NEC can suspend the party’s President between conferences.

Magashule argues he remains in office as he was appealing the decision to suspend him.
