Magashule was speaking during a tree-planting event in Soweto.

"I will be consulting former leaders of the ANC. I am talking about president Mbeki, former president of the Republic of South Africa comrade Kgalema, I'll be going to president Zuma, I'll be seeing former treasurer-general Mathews Phosa," Magashule said.

"I'm busy interacting with president Zuma, my office is still going to interact with president Mbeki and former president Kgalema Motlanthe."

"That's our resolution of the National Executive Committee. So it's an internal matter, let's leave it there. As a member of the ANC, leader, secretary-general I respect the decisions of the collective," he said.

"We are saying all formations or individuals doing wrong things must stop."
