Ace Magashule

ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule is reportedly set to be arrested and charged for his alleged links to the R255 million Free State asbestos audit contract. Pieter-Louis Myburgh, the journalist who penned the Scorpio report, quipped that: 

"A warrant of arrest has been issued for the ANC’s secretary-general, Ace Magashule, in connection to the R255-million asbestos audit contract in the Free State. This time it is for real, we don't do fake news."

Magashule, according to the report published by the Daily Maverick, is expected to appear in the Bloemfontein High Court possibly as soon as this week. 

The top ANC official is expected to be given an opportunity to voluntarily hand himself in. Scorpio understands that Magashule will make his first appearance in the Bloemfontein High Court as early as this week and that he has been given an opportunity to voluntarily present himself to the authorities. 

Myburgh's seemingly sarcastic comments on the authenticity of his report follows an earlier report also claiming that Magashule's days as a free man were numbered.
