In the face of serious allegations levelled against ANC Ace Magashule, former President Jacob Zuma has admonished his friend and loyalist to ignore haters and stay resolute.
Zuma offered support to ANC secretary general Ace Magashule, advising him to “stay resolute during these times”.
Zuma was replying to a tweet Magashule sent him to wish him happy birthday.
The former president was celebrating his 77th birthday on Friday.
I’d like to wish President @PresJGZuma a happy birthday. Ukhule Nxamalala #ZumaDay
Magashule was at the center of controversy this week following the release of the book Gangster State: Unravelling Ace Magashule’s Web of Capture, by investigative journalist and author Pieter-Louis Myburgh.
Following the release of the book, the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) in the Free State announced that it would burn copies of it. But the league called off its plans after ANC leaders at Luthuli House stepped in.
