Suspended ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule has served papers on the ANC. News24 reports that in the papers, which are set to be lodged in court today on a semi-urgent basis, Magashule argued the party’s Rule 25.70 in its constitution, that those who have been charged with serious crimes in a court of law should step aside, undermined the constitutional principle of innocent until proven guilty. It is believed that Magashule, in his court papers, argues that the rule was specifically added to target him and that President Cyril Ramaphosa’s letter last August, in which he drew a line in the sand on corruption in the ANC, was written to target him because Ramaphosa allegedly knew the National Prosecuting Authority would charge him in November with fraud and corruption. Meanwhile sources close to Magashule told News24 late on Thursday that he was expected to apologise for the “letter of suspension” he wrote to Ramaphosa, but there would be conditions attached.
