The South African Communist Party (SACP) says it congratulates the ANC's new top six leadership and accepts the outcome.

SACP's Solly Mapaila says the communist party will work with the ANC's new top leadership, despite a sense of stagnation among the elected candidates.

Mapaila says the SACP will not be silent if they have any concerns with ANC secretary general Ace Magashule's conduct.

Court have found that Magashule was elected fraudulently in the ANC Free State twice in five years and he has also been linked to the Guptas.

The SACP has been calling for the ANC to renew itself.

He says the top six must be accountable, must fight corruption and corruption, and mobilise for a reconfigured tripartite alliance.

There will no issue that we will not take up. We'll raise all the issues. There will be no holds barred.

We expect change of heart in the manner that he [Magashule] will conduct national politics.

Solly Mapaila, Second deputy General-Secretary of the SACP
