By challenging his suspension in court, Ace Magashule has effectively pulled the rug out from under the feet of the ANC NEC who now has to wait until the process is completed before implementing any further processes against him, writes Ralph Mathegka.

The African National Congress (ANC) finds itself in uncharted territory after its secretary-general decided to haul the party to court to challenge his suspension.

Ace Magashule is the first national office bearer of the party, otherwise referred to as the top six, to face suspension from the party and the first most senior leader of the party to run to court to seek relief against his own party.
