ANC secretary-general and former Free State premier, Ace Magashule faces arrest today ahead of his appearance in the Bloemfontein Magistrates’ Court on charges relating to the Free State’s controversial 2013/2014 225-million-rand asbestos audit contract. The ANC has said its top officials will not attend the sitting, although they welcome the SG’s chance to clear his name, while Magashule himself has asked supporters not to wear t-shirts or carry posters defending him. He insists that he is not worried as he has done nothing wrong.
