Only a court can 'unsuspend' ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa, Ace Magashule argues in court papersSuspended ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule insists that ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa remains “suspended” until a court of law decides otherwise.

I noticed a crowd of people giving testimony about Miss LouiseConway86 For helping them earn a huge amount of money from trading. So I decided to give it a try and to my surprise my first investment was just $300 and I received a profit of $3,950 A very reasonable amount 🤔 And yet the ANC President is going on with his work unhindered
Disturbing that youth are uninformed about June 16, says Cyril RamaphosaPresident Cyril Ramaphosa says it is disturbing that knowledge and awareness about the historic events of June 16 that transpired 45 years ago was diminishing among young South Africans. It's because of they are living the events happening now perpetrated by the biggest organized crime syndicate a nation has ever seen,namely the South African government. Not the ghosts CyrilRamaphosa chases around in his head. People are tired of bed time scary stories. Why should the youth care about deaths that happened so long ago when they are struggling with life today? They are fighting hunger and unemployment right now. People with degrees are struggling as much as people with grade 9 Maybe because history is destroyed and so lessons from the past are repeated
