Im­pli­cated lead­ers face ANC grilling

Move is in line with restor­ing the party’s in­tegrity – Duarte

Sunday World - - Sunday Report -

The ANC has re­ferred mem­bers im­pli­cated in the VBS “heist” saga to its in­tegrity com­mis­sion.

ANC deputy sec­re­tary-gen­eral Jesse Duarte said yes­ter­day the com­mis­sion would meet next week to con­sider the re­port on the col­lapse of VBS and “the cases of those lead­ers and mem­bers im­pli­cated and/or ac­cused of wrong­do­ing in the re­port”.

“The of­fi­cials of the ANC will also meet with the of­fi­cials of Lim­popo to dis­cuss the re­sponse of the prov­ince to the se­ri­ous al­le­ga­tions raised in the re­port‚” she said.

“These ac­tions are in line with the restora­tion and en­hance­ment of the val­ues and in­tegrity of the ANC‚ which our strat­egy and tac­tics (2017) calls for.

Duarte con­tin­ued: “It also re­flects the de­ter­mi­na­tion of ANC of­fi­cials‚ as dis­cussed at their re­cent lek­gotla‚ to lead the process of re­newal and unity of the ANC.”–TimesLIVE
