Magashule takes Ngqulwana to court over allegations he helped found the ATM

- | a month ago

ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule is dragging Buyisile Ngqulwana to court over claims he was one of the people behind the establishment of the African Transformation Movement (ATM) in a bid to destabilise the ANC.

The ATM was one of the many small parties that emerged in the lead-up to the 2019 general elections, with some in and out of the ANC claiming they were set up to split the vote and dramatically reduce the governing party's results. Ngqulwana, the secretary-general of the South African Council of Messianic Churches in Christ, while having dropped a legal bid to have the ATM removed from the ballot paper, has continued to claim the party was the brainchild of former president Jacob Zuma and Magashule.

He even insisted Magashule was responsible for the M in ATM's name.
