Former African National Congress (ANC) Youth League leader Fikile Mbalula has come out to blatantly criticize the structure over its nomination of the current Free State Province Premier Ace Makgashule to succeed Gwede Mantashe as the party Secretary General.

Mabalula tweeted “Ace Magashule a definite no no no the man will finish what is remaining of our movement he will kill it inffect

The tweet which was supported by his successor Julius Malema , the EFF Leader, the tweet went viral within an hour, re-tweeted over thousand times.

In a series of tweets the Police Minister attacked the Youth League’s list for the ANC’s top six leadership which he was put as second deputy to Jessie Duarte who is currently deputizing Gwede Mantashe in the position:

Mbalula urged ANCYL to rally behind Guateng Premier David Makhura NOT the Free State Premier Ace Makgashule…

Mabalula hit on Free State Premier Ace Makgashule…

ANCYL response to Mbalula criticism:

The ANCYL’s Mlondi Mkhize says that as a former ANCYL leader, Mbalula should have engaged the league’s leadership.

“What I think should have been said is that he comes and engages the structures of the African National Congress.”

He says they understand the context for Mbalula’s tweets.

ANC Free State response to Mbalula tweets:

The Free State ANC has reacted to the tweets, making it clear the provincial party is right behind Magashule.
