DA in the Free State welcomes the news of the arrest warrant for Ace Magashule

Prosecutors in the Free State have welcomed the news that an arrest warrant has been issued against ANC General Secretary Ace Magashule.

“We are delighted that the man who has been ransacking the province and impoverishing its citizens since 1994 is being brought to justice. He has acted with impunity for 26 years, and the DA’s longstanding litigation finally brought Mr Magashule before the law .

“Magashule has many other problems[s]including the Vrede Dairy Project, for which he has to answer in court, “said DA MPL Leona Kleynhans.

The prosecution will ensure that justice prevails.

“The tragedy of the destruction of the Free State and the looting of the state treasury by Mr Magashule will hopefully come to an end now when the wheels of justice turn against him.

“The wheels of justice are turning extremely slowly, but prosecutors will continue to ensure that their unstoppable movement is not stopped.”
