The ATM has reportedly moved to back ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule in his lawsuit against former general secretary of the messianic churches Buyisile Ngqulwana over his allegation that Magashule helped form the party.
Magashule is currently taking legal action against Ngqulwana, wanting him to apologise for alleging that he was the brains behind the formation of the ATM in the lead up to the general elections.
Magashule is also suing Ngqulwana for R500 000 as he claims the allegations against him had damaged his reputation as the leader of the ANC, as he was being viewed as a traitor.
The City Press reported that ATM president Vuyolwethu Ngqulwana had filed a supporting affidavit to bolster Magashule’s case.
The ATM, which is also separately suing Ngqulwana for R2 million for the same claims, has previously disputed that Magashule had a hand in establishing the party.
