According to aggrieved members of the ANC, its integrity commission is ineffective and biased. ANC Youth League spokesperson, Thulisa Ndlela, says the commission ignores some members who are accused of wrongdoing.
The ANC's integrity commission has been slammed by aggrieved members as inconsistent, biased, and ineffective when it comes to the members who have been accused of misconduct.
IOL News reports that Thulisa Ndlela, the ANC Youth League's spokesperson, recently voiced unhappiness with the commission. He used Minister Pravin Gordhan as one example of the commission's failure.
“While Malusi Gigaba and David Mabuza were called, no action has been taken against Pravin. There is no reason why he should not be called, after revelations about him.”
Ndlala added that the commission mustn't hold some accountable but not others.
“The commission should not ignore others and call others before it.”
This complaint comes after Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane released a report that found Gordhan guilty of approving a pension payout for ex-SARS boss, Ivan Pillay.
The commission's aim is to hold ANC leaders accountable for their alleged misbehaviour.
Briefly.co.za gathered that just before the party's new MPs have been sworn in, the commission has flagged 23 leaders, including David Mabuza, SA's Deputy President.
Others who appeared before the commission included Gwede Mantashe, Bathabile Dlamini and Nomvula Mokonyane.
