Cape Town - The Western Cape African National Congress provincial executive committee (PEC) has overturned the decision taken earlier this week by the provincial working committee (PWC) to suspend provincial treasurer Maurencia Gillion.
A majority of PEC members took the decision at a meeting on Friday night, ANC Western Cape secretary Faiez Jacobs said in a statement.
“She remains in her position. We have agreed to return a [R1 million elections campaign] donation received last week,” he said.
At the same meeting, the PEC further agreed on the political committee that should lead the ANC in the Western Cape legislature and also resolved who would represent the ANC in the National Council of Provinces (NCOP).
The PEC also agreed with a recommendation from the PWC that a parody Twitter account @NotPremierZille, which had been used to attack provincial ANC leaders, be investigated and that all ANC members be urged to stop commenting and insulting each other on social media.
