African National Congress (ANC) National Executive Committee (NEC) member, Bheki Cele, has publicly lambasted the party Secretary General. Cele says Ace Magashule is plotting to destroy the ANC.

Cele also questioned Magashule’s statement last weekend that the leadership will last for only one term. He was addressing the party’s 106th anniversary celebrations in Vryheid in northern KwaZulu Natal .

Cele also called on Magashule to explain his relationship with the controversial Guptas. A family, Cele says, has its claws deep into state entities.

“They must come back and answer. Someone must tell us what happened to Eskom, what happened to Denel which won’t be able to pay its employees in two months’ time. Tell us what happened to Prasa…”

Cele challenged Magashule to ensure that the thirty million rand meant for Vrede Dairy black Farmers is returned to them.
He said the money was instead channeled to the Gupta bank accounts and paid for a wedding in the Gupta family.

Cele further called on ANC members to work towards uniting the party.
