Watch| Ace Magashule Spills The Beans, He Confirms an ANC'S Premier's Money Theft Scandal

The suspended secretary of the African National Congress, Ace Magashule, has confirmed that Oscar Mabuyane indeed received some money that was meant for the memorial service of the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, who died back in 2018. Madikizela-Mandela died in 2018 and some money was allocated for his memorial service but was "stolen" by some officials.

Magashule revealed these allegations in an interview with the SABC a few weeks ago and these allegations he made were confirmed by the public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane in a report.

But Beleaguered Eastern Cape Premier Oscar Mabuyane will take the Public Protector's report, showing he pocketed R450 000 meant for a memorial service for Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and used it to renovate his home, on judicial review.

On Friday, Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane released the damning report, showing how political leaders in the province unduly benefitted from the memorial service tender funds.

Elias Sekgobelo "Ace" Magashule is a South African politician and an anti-apartheid activist who is currently on suspension from the position of Secretary General of the African National Congress. He served as the Premier of the Free State, one of South Africa's nine provinces, from 2009 until 2018
