It was speculated that Msibi’s death was directly linked with an investigation that was launched against him for allegedly syphoning funds from the public purse,

At the time of his death, Msibi was dealing with probes about how he allegedly placed his personal attorney as the recipient of millions of rands’ worth of legal consulting contracts from the province.

Although it is not clear whether or not there have been any active probes into Ackeer, the news of his poisoning attempt has sparked fears that Magashule has launched a campaign to silence those who have been labelled as spies in the province.

“I thought it was just an allergy. I would not know what and where I ate this‚ but it was confirmed that it was poison.

“Fortunately for me, it was detected but I can’t really pinpoint what really happened. Glad that I survived and I am home now” Ackeer said.

ANC members in Free State living in fear

A recently-published book, Gangster State: Unravelling Ace Magashule’s Wed of Capture by Pieter-Louis Myburgh, detailed the scourge of corruption that the secretary-general has been linked with.

Rumours that Magashule is targeting leaks

Myburgh, the investigative journalist that wrote the book, placed Magashule at the helm of the province.

Nothing moved without his touch and his power in the Free State is immeasurable.

The source described life in the province as “scary times”.

“This is getting scary. We are accused of leaking information to the media about the SG. We were told that individuals that are known were being investigated and they would lose their jobs.

“The Free State has turned into a very scary province to work in. We are called spies.” the source added.

Ackeer has made no indication that he would be opening a case of attempted murder with authorities and the office of the secretary-general has yet to issue a statement in this regard.
