The news is out: [JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – A top official in South Africa’s governing African National Congress appeared in court on Friday on corruption charges, a case that has deepened divisions within a party whose rule has been unchallenged since the 1994 end of white-minority rule.
Ace Magashule, secretary-general of the ANC and among its most powerful leaders, arrived at the magistrates court in Bloemfontein on Friday morning to the cheers of thousands of supporters who denounced the trial as a witch hunt. They chanted, danced and waved banners reading “Hands off Comrade Magashule”, footage from national TV channels showed.
He is the most high-profile politician to be tried since former president Jacob Zuma, whose trial on graft charges resumes in December.]
Why is Africa allowing these European negroes to be in charge?
