It doesn’t rain, it’s pours for African National Congress comrades as they now be summoned and having problems with the law one after another. In main part of last week and this week, Former President Jacob Gedlehlekisa Zuma has been on headlines for refusing to follow the Court order.

When it seems to be dying out the African National Congress Secretary general is set to appear before the court today. ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule and seven associates, as well as five companies, face several charges including fraud, corruption and money laundering over a multi-million rand asbestos roofing audit contract.

It will be the second appearance for the ANC secretary general to appear before the Bloemfontein magistrate court today. Those who are calling for his immediate arrest will be wearing orange masks while protesting outside the Magistrate Court.

Former Premier of Free State Ace Magashule, seven co accused as well as 5 fives companies are faced with multiple charges which include fraud, corruption and money laundering over a multi-million rand asbestos roofing audit contract.

Amongst the victims supporter there is a notable figure in the Former MEC Mxolisi Dukwana who said that they would be in orange masks as they giving their full support to the victims of the failed project.

Orange colour is a symbol of fight against the corruption. Ahmed Kathrada Foundation started the Orange Fridays campaign as a way of fighting corruption.

The group of African National Congress members and leaders are saying that this Court case should be used as a way to send message about the party togetherness, however some they are calling people to stay away from the court proceedings.

However Mr Ace Magashule has his own supporters who have already made their way into the city of Mangaung. Ace Magashule and his supporters in the ANC leadership and here in his home province are expected to fill some of the cordoned-off streets of Bloemfontein.

This as Mxolisi Dukwana, a friend turned foe of the ANC secretary-general, warns that this should be seen as a depressing period for the party. "Where our senior members are accused of committing crime against the very same people that they sought to lead."

Dukwana concluded by saying this, Magashule was not even fit to be called a cadre of the former liberation movement, also defended his own role in mobilising against the former premier of this province.
