Weekend Post (South Africa) - - NEWS -

FOL­LOW­ING the im­pris­on­ment of ANC Ward 20 coun­cil­lor Bongo Nom­biba, the party is plan­ning to visit res­i­dents in the ward to ex­plain what had hap­pened.

In a state­ment re­leased yes­ter­day, ANC re­gional sec­re­tary Themba Xathula said they wanted to in­form the com­mu­nity of the way for­ward.

Xathula said the ANC noted the judg­ments on Nom­biba, who was con­victed of fraud, and ANC coun­cil­lor Andile Lungisa who was jailed for as­sault­ing DA coun­cil­lor Rano Kayser.

“We call on Ward 20 not to lis­ten to the op­por­tunis­tic ten­den­cies of other po­lit­i­cal par­ties, and re­main loyal and com­mit­ted to the ideals of the ANC.”

Dur­ing a meet­ing with the re­gional al­liance sec­re­tar­iat yes­ter­day, Xathula said they dis­cussed the up­com­ing na­tional elec­tions pro­gramme, and noted the DA’s con­tin­ued on­slaught “aimed at our peo­ple”. – No­maz­ima Nkosi
