African National Congress(ANC) Secretary General Ace Magashule, who is also Free State Premier, says any attempts and allegations to implicate him in fraud and corruption will not force him to resign from his position.
Magashule was speaking at the ANC Youth League’s rally in Pietermaritzburg. On Friday the Hawks raided his Bloemfontein office, looking for documents related to the provincial government’s deal with the Estina Dairy Farm.
Over R220-million earmarked for aspiring black farmers in the Estina project has disappeared. Magashule says he is unshaken by the allegations.
“They are trying by all means to implicate us and we are saying the law must take its course. They must investigate and decide and if any wrong doing was done they must act without fear. They must not try intimidating us with a view for us to leave positions,” he said.
