Former Secretary-General of the South African ruling party Ace Magashule has rejected his suspension and taken his appeal to the Supreme Court of Appeal.
Ace Magashule, a former top official in the African National Congress (ANC), was ousted in May after being charged with corruption.
He lost his bid to have his suspension overturned by the High Court in July. It ruled that the ANC was right to suspend him for failing to follow the party’s rule requiring him to step aside on being charged with a criminal case.
But Mr Magashule now wants the Supreme Court of Appeal to overturn the decision.
