Cape Town - Troubled ANC provincial leader Marius Fransman is fighting for his political survival as he takes on the ANC for entertaining “factional politics to neutralise him” in the local government elections campaign.
ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe said this week Fransman will face the party’s national disciplinary committee after a recommendation from the party’s integrity commission which initially handled the sexual harassment complaint.
Angry over media leaks, Fransman demanded an apology or proof that the controversially leaked Integrity Commission report, which City Press claimed to have a copy of, was authentic and that he be provided with a copy.
“I have not been treated with expected respect, justness, impartiality and fairness demanded by the distinctive ANC spirit,” he said.
The City Press this week reported the commission recommended that Fransman relinquish all positions he held in the party for bringing the party into disrepute following the sexual harassment allegations brought against him by 21-year-old Louisa Wynand, during the ANC’s 104th birthday celebrations in January.
