The ANC NEC has resolved that members charged with wrongdoing must step aside within 30 days, or face suspension from the party. This includes the party’s secretary general, Ace Magashule, who has been charged with corruption. The party said that this is in line with the party’s previous resolution to clamp down on corruption within its ranks. Magashule and his support base in the party spent the weekend fighting against the move. The SG will need to step aside by the end of April.
