The African National Congress’ secretary general, Fikile Mbalula, recently launched a strong critique of Ace Magashule, placing the blame squarely on him for the Free State province’s extended struggle with poor service delivery and widespread corruption.
Mbalula didn’t mince words as he stressed the importance of holding party members accountable. With the race for top ANC positions heating up, allegations against Mbalula have come to the forefront. He underlined the harm that the situation in the Free State has inflicted on the party’s reputation and trustworthiness.
Mbalula called for immediate action against corruption and incompetence within ANC institutions to rebuild the party’s credibility and regain the support of its voters. This internal strife within the ANC highlights the ongoing challenges of corruption and good governance.
Furthermore, it underscores the urgent need to tackle systemic problems related to service delivery and unethical behavior, which the ANC has pledged to address.
