The ANC secretary general Ace Magashule was absent from the party’s comemoration ceremony of Winnie Madikizela Mandela’s life.
President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that he is in Free State doing other things.
He said Ace Magashule was not the only one missing, the National chair, the MP as well as the deputy secretary general.
Ramaphosa said it does not mean everyone has to be where ever he is.
ANC said although Ace Magashule is set to step aside, but for now he remains the Secretary General.
However, ANC said this doesn’t mean its project and unit will fail.
