Johannesburg - ANC secretary general Ace Magashule is worried about the fresh allegations that he was involved in systemic corruption in the Free State, and has reiterated that he was considering taking legal action against the author of the book who implicated him.
Magashule was speaking on the sidelines of a special meeting of the governing party’s national executive committee held in Irene, outside Pretoria.
In a book by Pieter-Louis Myburgh, titled Gangster State - Unravelling Ace Magashule’s Web of Capture, which was published on Sunday, Magashule is alleged to have pocketed kickbacks from a multimillion asbestos deal when he was Free State premier.
Magashule said: “Let me not enter that space... You see I am worried, I’m considering going the legal route”.
Magashule declined to respond to further questions, saying that the ANC head of communications would be taking questions on the matter.
