Corrupt Ace Magashule: SA economy still in white hands – we are slaves

ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule says “dark forces” in the ruling party are hellbent on distracting from the struggle for ANC secretary-generalnd the battle against white monopoly capital.

He was speaking at a memorial lecture in honour of struggle stalwart Walter Sisulu, held at the Waaihoek Methodist Church in Bloemfontein yesterday. In a prepared speech, he said it is unacceptable that the economy is still in white hands.

“The struggle for economic emancipation of our people is and must be unstoppable. We can no longer be slaves in our own nation. We can no longer be counted as the poorest of the poor, while those who hold our wealth through historic theft still enjoy it,” he said.

Ace Magashule, ‘The Gangster’, accused of “buying votes” with R400 handshake, I just wonder how many ‘dead people’ will he resurrect with his ‘handshake’ (video)

ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule has downplayed suggestions that Ramaphoria – the mood of positivity around President Cyril Ramaphosa – will see white South Africans voting for the party in big numbers in the May 8 general election.
