Durban - The SACP in KwaZulu-Natal has thrown its weight behind the ANC’s Integrity Committee following reports that some in the ruling party, including the MK Military Veterans Association, were calling of its overhaul.
During a press briefing in Durban on Tuesday, SACP provincial secretary Themba Mthembu blamed the ANC for the findings of the committee, which was formed through resolutions of the 2017’s ANC conference in Nasrec to hold party leaders accountable.
He said the committee should be allowed space to do its work and that the ANC's national executive committee (NEC) should implement the committee's recommendations.
“If the NEC is not decisive we are going to experience shortcomings in addressing what we are currently seeing with regards to the conduct of some leaders in the ruling party,” he said.
Ahead of the swearing in of MPs, the integrity commission summoned 23 high profile ANC leaders, including deputy president David Mabuza and Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe, to appear before it to answer on various allegations of misconduct against them.
