Former Free State Premier and suspended secretary general of the ANC, Ace Magashule has hit out at the African National Congress for their constant denial that they lost in the local government elections.
ANC leaders have been refusing to accept that ANC lost in the local government elections citing that they didn't lose, but expected it since the movement is undergoing it's renewal process.
Suspended secretary general of the ANC, Ace Magashule lambasted the endorsement of some party members ahead of the party's 55th elective conference to be held in December this year.
His utterances comes after party president, Cyril Ramaphosa was endorsed for a second term during the ANC’s 110th-anniversary celebrations which were held in Polokwane.
Ace Magashule is one of the ANC comrades who attended the funeral of ANC veteran, Pule Mlambo which was held in Randburg. Magashule was one of the speakers at the funeral.
The former Free State Premier, Ace Magashule who is currently battling his corruption charges which led to his suspension from ANC says things in the party have changed and people are no longer following the principles of the movement.
He argued that the ANC should honour the likes of Pule Mlambo by implementing what they fought for and not deviate from party values.
While referring to ANC’s performance during local government elections he said party leaders must desist from comforting themselves that ANC didn't lose elections.
"Stop lying to people saying the ANC did not lose during the election. We lost elections. But they say we've not lost. If you lose power, you've lost
If you say REC discuss with EFF, you can take Johannesburg. It's how you engage. If you say you want leader so and so before NEC opens processes, you'll elect leaders who just give you money," he said.
