Magashule Has Been Ordered To Apologise To Ramaphosa For Suspension The Letter.
The secretary-general of the African National Congress Ace Magashule has been instructed to issue an apology to President Cyril Ramaphosa for issuing a suspension letter to him or stand to face disciplinary charges. Ramaphosa disclosed this during his closing address to the three-day national executive committee (NEC) meeting.
Magashule issued a suspension letter to Ramaphosa after the ANC national working committee served him with its own suspension letter. Magashule is facing corruption charges but has refused to step aside. ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa said that Magashule had no authority or mandate from any of the party’s structures to draft a suspension letter in his name.
"The NEC agree that such conduct was completely unacceptable and a flagrant violation of the rules, the norms, and the values of the African National Congress," Ramaphosa said. Magashule’s temporary suspension bars him from doing any of his duties, speaking on behalf of the organisation or on any of its matters as well as mobilising across ANC structures. He has, however, insisted that he had the right to continue as if it was business as usual because he had appealed his sanction.
