Monday, Cyril Ramaphosa, the president of the National Executive Committee (NEC), gave his last speech to the NEC. The main things talked about were the suspension of Secretary-General Ace Magashule and the suspension of President Jacob Zuma by Magashule as a response.
President Ramaphosa said that the NEC had decided that Magashule should apologize in full for writing a letter to the President about suspending him. Magashule did this without consulting the NEC.
Magashule has been told that he can either apologize or be kicked out of the ANC if he doesn't follow the order.
Tony Yengeni, a strong supporter of Magashule's RET, was not having any of it, as his early morning tweet shows. But now,
As a member of the NEC who has said over and over that Magashule is not going anywhere, Yengeni is sending this message of support to his troubled ally.
Some of us, like Comrade SG, went through a lot more, but we still stand by our political beliefs and say we have "no regrets" about being so strong. "Vasbyt, get back on the right track!
But it seems like Magashule has no choice but to apologize because he has been put in a bad spot.
Magashule's suspension will stay in place no matter what advice he takes.
