Magashule considering legal action against Myburgh

JOHANNESBURG -  ANC Secretary General Ace Magashule says he's considering legal action after claims that he was the central figure in alleged corruption involving the Gupta family.

Investigative journalist, Pieter-Louis Myburgh, has penned a new book titled, Gangster State: Unravelling Ace Magashule's Web of Capture.

In the book, Myburgh places Magashule at the centre of alleged involvement in state capture.

Speaking to journalists in Irene, Pretoria, Magashule, said he doesn't want to comment further on the issue as he's considering taking legal action.

He also assured the media that reports, suggesting names on the party's candidates list had changed, were not true.

"There is no list which was changed. The list presented to the IEC is the list presented to the extended NWC where provinces were all present on the 11th before the 13th when we went to register the list," said Magashule.

However, the ANC Secretary General indicated that although no changes have been made, the list is not set in stone.

"The law prohibits people with criminal records of more than 12 months, and the law will take it's place and the ANC will respect the Constitution and Electoral Act," he said.

Meanwhile, Magashule has dismissed claims that he was the central figure in alleged corruption involving the Gupta family.
