Supporters of powerful South African politician Ace Magshule have disrupted the launch of a book, Gangster State, which accuses him of widespread corruption.
The singing and dancing protesters stormed the launch in an upmarket suburb in the main city, Johannesburg, and ripped pages of Gangster State, publisher Penguin Books said.
Mr Magashule is the secretary-general of the governing African National Congress (ANC), and is responsible for the day-to-day running of the party.
The ANC has dismissed the book as a “culmination of lies” against Mr Magashule, while he has threatened to sue its author, investigative journalist Pieter-Louis Myburg, and Penguin Books.
