Johannesburg - The African Transformation Movement (ATM) says it is more than willing and ready to appear before the ANC’s commission probing allegations that some of its senior members, Jacob Zuma and Ace Magashule, helped with the formation of smaller splinter parties like it before the May 8 general elections.
The commission which is yet to start its hearings would be headed by party veteran and former speaker of the national assembly during the Nelson Mandela era, Dr Frene Ginwala.
The inquiry was empowered to recommend disciplinary action against any ANC member should prima facie evidence exists in relation to the allegations against them.
ATM’s president, Vuyo Zungula, said they although the commission has not written to them to solicit their key input, they are more than ready to do so because they want to clear their good name.
He said that was the case because some within the country’s political arena and the ANC itself were using the vexatious allegations to stigmatized them as a product of an ANC faction or having links to the ruling party itself.
