Ousted African National Congress (ANC) secretary-general Ace Magashule says those in the country’s law enforcement are behind lengthy delays in the multi-million dollar asbestos case at the Bloemfontein High Court.

He told a large contingent of media outside the court that he would continue to be a member of the ANC and would be nominated for office at the upcoming 55th National Electoral Conference in December.

If I will be nominated from the departments, then I will be nominated, I was not chosen by any leader: Magashule

Magashule told ANC members who came to show their support when he appeared again in the Bloemfontein High Court.

After the adjournment of his case, a visibly irritated Magashule says the intention is to prevent him from running for a leadership position in the ANC during the upcoming 55th National Electoral Conference in December.

The NPA says the multimillion-dollar asbestos test could take more than a year:

He says there is a plot to destroy the ANC so it can govern in coalition with the Democratic Alliance (DA) in the 2024 general election.

Magashule adds that he will defend the ANC and South Africa will see how time goes.

“They keep delaying the case quite deliberately because the intention is to kill the ANC. And to ANC members all over the country: Don’t allow the ANC to be killed and be part of the DA, which is the ideological enemy. That is the point, but time will tell and you will see that we will really save this ANC,” Magashule said.

Magashule admitted that the ANC has failed the people of South Africa and that is why the country has high unemployment. He says it is a shame that ANC leaders choose to be on the ground only during the election period.

“We have failed our people who are members of the ANC, the leaders at the base. When people are marching against high petrol prices, high food and electricity prices in Saweta and elsewhere, against unemployment, where are these ANC leaders? ANC leaders are going to march with people in 2024 and say come vote ANC. How will people vote for the ANC?” Magashule asks.

The ousted ANC secretary-general says the country and the ANC need to do more to honor former president Jacob Zuma. He says these internal political battles are not good for the ANC but will kill the party. He recently visited Zuma in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal.
