The African National Congress (ANC)’s Youth League candidate to succeed President Jacob Zuma is the Free State Premier Ace Makgashule.
This is according to the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema
In a tweet he said “The youth league will be nominating Ace for president because Duduzane told the Father that the Guptas are not happy with the stepmother”
Ace Makgashule who is rumoured to be the leader of the so-called Premier League faction of the ruling party has not yet announced his availability for the party Presidential position.
If Malema’s tweet is something to go by, then the ANCYL will be lobbying for his support within ANC branches countrywide.
ANC branches are dominated by Women and Youth
