Secretary General of the African National Congress published a letter on social media announcing the suspension of the party’s president, Cyril Ramaphosa.
This comes after Magashule was suspended by the leadership of the ANC.
The ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe confirmed that the letter was valid.
Magashule in the letter states that Jesse Duarte, had no powers to serve him with the letter.
“I herewith announce that I am immediately, and formally, appealing this unconstitutional suspension. In terms of the ANC Constitution, my suspension is thus wholly suspended, until my appeal has been heard, and its final outcome announced.
“I have also, in accordance with the powers vested in me as the Secretary General of the ANC, and furthermore in full compliance with the relevant conference Resolutions summarily suspended the President of the ANC, comrade Cyril Ramaphosa,” Magashule’s letter read.
The NEC is expected to meet over the weekend.
Mabe also said the matter will be discussed in their meeting.
