SABC News Jessie Duarte - Duarte warns ANC leadership of crisis facing the party

African National Congress (ANC) Deputy Secretary-General Jessie Duarte has issued a stern warning to the party’s leadership saying they are facing a crisis.

Divisions in the ANC were evident on Friday morning as two groups from the party demonstrated outside the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court.

Angry supporters of Secretary-General Ace Magashule burnt party t-shirts demanding ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa step down.

 Angry ANC members burn t-shirts with Ramaphosa’s face:

Duarte has called for calm and discipline from Magashule supporters.

” Yes there are people in the ANC who would very much like to see the President of the ANC resign but that is not the position of the ANC. One must ask you who exactly are those people and whose mandate are they talking on. We are very determined to be united. We don’t agree with people burning the t-shirts of the President. It is a crisis of course so let’s allow the law to please take its course.”

Magashule adamant that no one can remove him from the ANC

Meanwhile, Magashule is adamant that no one can remove him from the ruling party, following his first appearance in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s court on corruption charges.
He addressed his supporters after being released on R200 000 bail.  Magashule is among eight people and five companies who face several charges of fraud, corruption and money laundering relating to the alleged irregular awarding of the 2014 asbestos roofing audit tender in the Free State while he was still Premier of the province.
