SIKONATHI MANTSHANTSHA: Time to flush out the Ace
In his haste to frustrate the social order, ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule has revealed himself as the weakest link
The resignations of ANC MPs who missed out on undeserved cabinet positions opens a new front in the battle for control of state resources. The terrain of struggle has now moved to Luthuli House, headquarters of the party once so ably led by Inkosi Albert Luthuli, Oliver Tambo and Nelson Mandela. The looters who operated so freely during the Jacob Zuma years, in cahoots with the Gupta family and the Saxonwold Shebeen clique, have regrouped to fight another day.
Party secretary-general Ace Magashule is the new commander. Decisively dealing with him now would free the party to rebuild and reform.
