The African National Congress has confirmed that its Former Secretary General Ace Magashule has been expelled as a member  after he was found guilty of violating party constitution .

The National Disciplinary Committee (NDC) of the African National Congress (ANC) says it met to deliberate on charges preferred against its former Secretary-General, Ace Magashule.

ANC says Magashule was found guilty of contravening Rules 25.17.12, 25.17.3, 12.1 and 12.2.20 of the ANC Constitution.

“After a guilty verdict by the NDC, Comrade Ace Magashule was allowed to show cause why he should not be expelled from the ANC. Upon the lapse of seven (7) days, the NDC had not received any representations to that effect.” said ANC in a Statement

“Consequently, the NDC confirmed the expulsion of comrade Ace Magashule from the ANC as a final sanction”

Magashule had 7 days to give the ANC justifications for why he ought not be removed.

Magashule has been viewed as at legitimate fault for wrongdoing for neglecting to apologize to the party subsequent to endeavoring to singularly suspend party president Cyril Ramaphosa in 2021.

By announcing that he had suspended Ramaphosa, Magashule attempted to side with him.

“I have also, in accordance with the powers vested in me as the secretary-general of the ANC, and furthermore in full compliance with the relevant conference resolutions, summarily suspended the president of the ANC, Comrade Cyril Ramaphosa.”

‘The image of the ANC’

Political analyst Rebone Tau suggested that Magashule’sexpulsion could potentially affect the party negatively. Tau said the expulsion came as a shock and was not expected as Magashule is “at the lowest politically.”

“I don’t think he can actually do any harm to the organisation at the moment. But this expulsion can actually do more harm to the organisation.”

Tau said the ANC has failed to learn from expelling some its leaders like former ANCYL leader Julius Malema. She has suggested that expulsion should be the last resort for the party.
