Johannesburg - The ANC parliamentary caucus plans to be visible in constituencies and partner with civil society organisations to address challenges, the party’s chief whip Pemmy Majodina said on Monday.
“Parliamentary constituency offices will follow up on the challenges raised by communities, working together with local government,” Majodina said.
She made the remarks following the ANC caucus lekgotla held at the weekend and aimed at putting in place a five-year programme that would guide all the party’s MPs.
“The ANC in Parliament resolved to strengthen oversight over the government, and for the restructuring of some state-owned enterprises (SOEs), to ensure good returns on public funds invested into SOEs,” Majodina said.
She said the party would strengthen the ethics rules to include compulsory and regular ethics training for all its MPs.
