The ANC has called for cool heads as it prepares to discuss Magashule and his defiance of the party at a national executive committee meeting this weekend.
He was suspended this week after failing to step aside over the past 30 days, this is in accordance with a 2017 ANC conference resolution for those facing corruption or serious charges to vacate office.
Mabe claimed that no one was above the party: “We have requested that the secretary-general respects the decisions of the NEC and subject himself to the discipline of the organisation. All of us must at all times subject ourselves to the discipline of the organisation, which is driven by the oath of membership that we have taken.”
