The African National Congress National Executive Committee member Derek Hanekom has "attacked" the secretary-general of the party for saying that Kgalema Motlanthe is a former Deputy President.
Ace Magashule on his Twitter account wrote: "Great engagements I had today with President Mbeki and Deputy President Motlanthe."
Derek Hanekom said: "That's good! They are both former Presidents actually, although comrade Kgalema's term was not very long."
Some said that Derek Hanekom is deliberately conflating issues. They said that Kgalema Motlanthe was never a President of the African National Congress, but of the country. Kgalema Motlanthe became a president after former President Thabo Mbeki was removed from his position.
Kgalema Motlanthe then campaigned for the ANC Presidency in 2007, which was held in Polokwane and he lost to former President Jacob Zuma. Since then, Kgalema Motlanthe has never campaigned for the ANC Presidency. Some also questioned how long was Derek Hanekom a spy.
