The story: Embattled ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule says he is open to discussions with his ANC colleague and Transport Minister, Fikile Mbalula.

Members' issues: "Members of the ANC, including Comrade Mbalula, might have issues. We are pleading with them to raise matters internally. All of us must be happy that way because that's how the ANC cooperates, that's how the ANC works, we raise matters internally," he told journalists on Tuesday.

The background: He was speaking outside the ANC's KwaZulu-Natal headquarters in Durban, where he was intervening in a dispute with uMkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans (MKMVA), who said more had to be done to maintain the welfare of all liberation soldiers.
