The battle for ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule to be reinstated now goes to the branches, writes Ralph Mathekga.

After a dramatic week of suspension letters, the ANC's national executive committee (NEC) has rallied to clarify which suspension stands and which one is not valid.

This follows an unprecedented move by the embattled secretary-general of the party, who retaliated last week by suspending the president of the party, Cyril Ramaphosa, after he himself was suspended.
