Political analyst Professor Mcebisi Ndletyana says the ANC should come out of today’s meeting with the correct punishment for Ace Magashule.
The party’s National Working Committee (NWC) is expected to discuss Magashule’s defiance towards the step aside resolution.
Magashule has not apologized for suspending ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa but has instead approached the courts.
His matter against the ANC is expected to be heard in the Gauteng High court next week.
Ndletyana says the ANC will have to commit to its statement that if Magashule doesn’t apologise he risks further disciplinary action.
Magashule suspends Ramaphosa
The ANC NEC revealed in March that all leaders facing criminal charges would be given 30 days to resign or face suspension.
“The meeting emphasised that the 30 day period will be to enable the implementation of the decision in line with the guidelines, not to review the decision,” Ramaphosa said in a statement.
Several weeks later, Magashule, who is facing corruption charges related to the Free State asbestos case, attempted to suspend Ramaphosa as leader of the ANC.
Monday’s NWC meeting could result in formal disciplinary action being taken against Magashule, which could lead to his expulsion.
