    Ace Magashule has confirmed that he will meet with President Ramaphosa before the end of the month, as the pair look to come to a definitive agreement on the Secretary-General’s future.

    Ace Magashule ‘battling for political future’

    Ramaphosa told Magashule last week that he would have to step aside from his position, or be suspended within a 30 day period. Now with just 21 days left to run, there’s no sign that Ace – implicated in a huge, asbestos-related tender irregularity – is going down without a fight. Indeed, over the past few days, his supporters have vowed to lead a fightback.

    There has been no grand uprising as promised by some pro-Magashule ANC members, but it seems a propaganda campaign is already underway – you only have to catch a taxi in Limpopo to see what’s been happening…

    However, despite tensions running high between the two party stalwarts, both Ramaphosa and Magashule are set for crunch talks before the end of the month. After attending a Charlotte Maxeke Memorial event, Ace told the media:

    “[A meeting with Ramaphosa] will take place after I’ve had consultations with the former leaders of the ANC. There’s no way I can do any other thing before I report back to the President and the National Executive Committee.”

    “People love the ANC but they’ll love the ANC more when it shows it is committed to fighting corruption and acts against those implicated. Corruption is poison. South Africans don’t want it, because they don’t benefit.” | Ace Magashule

    Ramaphosa takes swipe at corruption-accused SG

    While delivering the Charlotte Maxeke Memorial Lecture on Wednesday, Cyril Ramaphosa paid tribute to the social rights icon – and did so by landing a few thinly-veiled blows on Magashule. This wasn’t exactly subtle from the president.

    “Charlotte Maxeke would have refused to play politics or take sides. When the party took a decision, she never said she would do something else or rejected the decision. She would have said no to factions, no to corruption. Charlotte would have played a proactive role in calling our leadership out on their failures. I need those kinds of people around me.
