Johannesburg – The African National Congress on Monday announced that it has expelled its former secretary general, Ace Magashule, from the party.
In a communique issued by party spokesperson, Mahlengi Bhengu-Motsiri, the ANC National Disciplinary Committee (NDC) said: “Comrade Ace Magashule was allowed to show cause why he should not be expelled from the ANC.
“Upon the lapse of seven days, the NDC had not received any representations to that effect.
“Consequently, the NDC confirmed the expulsion of comrade Ace Magashule from the ANC as a final sanction.”
Last week the NDC found Magashule guilty of misconduct for contravening Rules 25.17.12, 25.17.3, 12.1, and 12.2.20 of the ANC Constitution.
Magashule was suspended by the ANC in May 2021, with full pay, from his then R133 000-a-month secretary general job after he was charged with fraud and corruption.
