Ace Magashules, former secretary-general of the African National Congress (ANC), intends to reveal ANC heads who he claims are behind multi-million-rand graft lawsuits against him.
Magashule and 18 others are being held accountable for an irregular tender of R225 million allocated by the Free State Human Settlements Department about seven years ago.
On Thursday, the one-time political heavyweight and his 18 co-accused appeared shortly at Bloemfontein’s High Court.
Magashule claims that he has proof of collaboration by some ANC heads against him in the multi-million rand graft case he is now facing.
Once in court, you’ll find a record of what the ANC leadership has said about this case. When the trial starts, and I’m in the box – that’s the first thing you’ll hear.
Thursday’s postponement let Magashule and his co-accused at the Supreme Court of Appeal conclude their appeal bid.
Magashule: controversial businessman Edwin Sodi, and Thabane Zulu, former head of the Free State Human Settlements Department, want the SCA’s support to change a Bloemfontein High Court ruling that shunned their demand for a stay on the prosecution.
