This after Magashule appeared before the party’s Integrity Commission at Luthuli House in Johannesburg at the weekend.
Integrity Commission report below:
Magashule is out on R200 000 bail for criminal charges relating to a multi-million rand asbestos project while he was premier in the Free State.
The Integrity Commission says they are concerned that there is growing negative perception about the ANC’s National Executive Commission on its stance on alleged corruption.
The party says its decision to recommend that Magashule step aside was based on the National Executive Council Resolution of August 2020.
It states that cadres of the ANC who are formally charged for corruption must immediately step aside from all leadership positions in the ruling party pending the finalisation of their cases.
