- ANC secretary general, Ace Magashule, says that the media is to blame for the party’s Integrity Commission’s damning reports of some MPs
- The Commission red-flagged a large number of names on the ANC’s parliamentary list, including SA deputy president, David Mabuza
- Magashule has accused the Commission of basing their reports about MPs on media-fuelled rumours and has lambasted them of not having any concrete evidence
African National Congress (ANC) secretary general, Ace Magashule, has come forward to criticise recent accusations made by the ANC Integrity Commission against names included on the ANC’s parliamentary candidate list.
Magashule says that the Commission is at fault for relying on media representations of those who were red-flagged, EWN reported.
The Integrity Commission flagged a number of ANC members chosen for parliament, including SA deputy president, David Mabuza.
The secretary general went on to say that those who have been accused of corruption by the Integrity Commission need to have their voices heard.
“A person must be heard; you can’t judge and find a person guilty in the public space. We’re correcting all those things and they will never ever happen again,” Magashule insisted.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Magashule intended to bring up the Integrity Commission’s accusations with the ANC National Executive Committee (NEC).
“This noise of the media… I think we mistakenly listen to the noises and unfortunately we dealt with many comrades. We must correct ourselves and make sure that we follow the resolutions of Nasrec,” Magashule said.
The secretary general told media representatives that the Integrity Commission has yet to finalise and release the report regarding the flagged parliament members.
