Ace Magashule will face allegations of corruption in his personal capacity. That's the word from the ANC national executive committee, which this week reached consensus on the matter.

The allegations are contained in a book by investigative journalist Pieter-Louis Myburgh. Party spokesperson Dakota Legoete said: “The SG will take it alone as an individual because it involves his era as premier not his current position of SG.

“He has agreed to take the matter up legally in his capacity as Ace Magashule the former premier of Free State.”

Myburgh also responds to allegations of being a ‘Stratcom agent’ and has even welcomed threats of legal action from Magashule himself.
