Questions as to when Ace Magashule will officially report for duty at Luthuli House and resign as Free State Premier continues.
This, amidst speculations that former Secretary General, Gwede Mantashe, will this week make a proper hand-over to the new ANC SG. A Provincial Task Team to take over the dissolved PEC’s responsibilities is also expected to be appointed soon. This after the Free State High Court, last year, declared the Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) null and void. The ANC in the province, however, says it is in no position to comment on Magashule’s newly elected position nor on the Premier and Chairperson positions. Spokesperson, Thabo Meeko, explains.
“Luthuli House is better positioned to talk about this matter, as he is no longer the product of the province. The national officials and the National Executive Committee (NEC) are better positioned to explain everything, including the timelines as to what is going to happen, when and how”. He says as the province they do not want to speculate.
