Responding to whether the revelations should also see him being dragged to the commission probing allegations that there are party members who helped to form smaller breakaway parties ahead of the May general elections, Hanekom said he has nothing to answer for.
“No, this had nothing to do with forming any party. There is nothing to explain. There is nothing wrong with members of different parties meet(ing) with each other. He (Malema) initiated it,” Hanekom said in response.
But Durban-based political analyst Xolani Dube of the Xubera Institute said since the ANC national executive committee (NEC) was going to meet this weekend, it should discuss the matter and because there was already a commission which was established for such a matter, it should be probed.
“They should discuss this matter, they should. It has become interesting that even those who claimed to be working for unity had a second plan to work against this unity. So, it is a clear indication that what we were told was not an honest thing,” Dube said.
