Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, believes the predicament in which ANC Secretary General Ace Magashule finds himself is not random. Ace Magashule is being investigated by the FBI.
oleh the National Prosecuting Authority for misappropriating funds intended for the Free State's Abestos Audit project. As a result, the ANC NEC met to review the parameters for stepping aside for members who are under investigation.
Although it is unclear what the NEC has decided, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma claims that Ramaphosa is acting on Johann Rupert's directives. Rupert's influence within ANC, she claims, is growing obvious by the day. According to reports, Rupert gave the President orders to send Magashule packing.
Ace Magashule is a member of the Radical Economic Transformation movement, which has been linked to Jacob Zuma on several occasions and advocates for topics such as land expropriation without compensation and free education. If the reports are accurate, it's easy to see why they'd want him gone.
Dlamini-Zuma has previously stated that the RET are not thieves, despite Johann Rupert's assertion that "Radical Economic Transformation" is a code for robbery. She did argue, though, that we should reject what Rupert says, particularly because they are the ones who grabbed our land and now control the economy.
She urged South Africans not to be afraid, claiming that they say this to make us fear that if we do it, we will be labeled as thieves. We aren't crooks.
