Gauteng ANC: President Zuma must approach Integrity Commission or step down

Gauteng ANC PEC (Provincial Executive Committee) has called on President Jacob Zuma to 'do the right thing' following the damning Constitutional Court judgement.

The provincial branch of the governing party said Zuma should either seek advice from the ANC Integrity Commission or step aside.

702's John Robbie spoke to ANC Gauteng Secretary, Hope Papo, about their position regarding the issue.

Listen to the conversation below:

It's a reflection of the decision by the PEC. This is one of the issues which was put on the table by the PEC with this situation facing the movement for the past two years.

Hope Papo, ANC Gauteng Secretary

One of the things the president could do is approach the organisation and say 'allow me to resign and I'll remain the president of the ANC' and the ANC deals with the issue.

Hope Papo, ANC Gauteng Secretary

Analysts have said that the statement is a non-statement, while other provincial branches have accused Gauteng of being mischievous.

The president could approach the Integrity Commission and ask if there are ethical or integrity issues and seek advice on that matter.

Hope Papo, ANC Gauteng Secretary

With the calls for the president to step aside, as the ANC, our view is that we must assess those views carefully.
