Free State Premier, Ace Magashule also added his voice to the growing chorus against corruption.



Magashule, who is ANC Secretary General, said, “Wherever there is corruption the law must take its place, whether its Vrede Dairy farm or anything else. So let’s leave that matter with the NPA, the law enforcers. We are reiterating the stance of the ANC that we need to fight corruption."
