Ace in the hole

CityPress - - Voices -

Free State Premier Elias “Ace” Ma­gashule was the only male to ad­dress the youth wing of the ANC Women’s League this week. He was re­ceived warmly with re­peated shouts of “Aaaaaaace! Aaaaaaaace!”, as if he was about to ex­e­cute a de­light­ful foot­ball trick. Later, when del­e­gates from Mpumalanga were stranded out­side the Ur­ban Ho­tel wait­ing to find out if they would be al­lowed to stay there, it was Ace they had to call on. But he must have been em­bar­rassed by all the chaos at this con­fer­ence, which in­cluded del­e­gates trav­el­ling for 12 hours, only to have to wash in a petrol sta­tion’s re­stroom.
