The news: "We are calling for our secretary-general, Ace Magashule, to step down". These were the words of a group of ANC Free State members who converged on Luthuli House, the party's headquarters, to demand "corrupt elements" be flushed out. 

Root out corruption: Party members, who said they were affected by the beleaguered asbestos and Estina dairy farm projects, were calling on the top six to root out corrupt leaders in the party, especially Magashule. 

What happened: While waiting on top ANC officials to hand over their memorandum, they sang, "Limene mene makahambe" (He is a liar, he must leave).
