Contrary to reports, controversial Western Cape ANC leader Marius Fransman has not been given the go ahead by Luthuli House to resume his duties.
ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa dismissed reports that Fransman was officially back in the fold after he was spotted during door-to-door electioneering in Philippi with President Zuma.
Fransman was asked to step down earlier this year to allow for a probe into claims that he sexually assaulted a female subordinate.
A leaked internal party report apparently recommended he relinquish all politically-elected positions within the ANC.
Kodwa explains that Fransman's investigation has been referred to the ANC's national disciplinary committee which reports back only to senior party officials.
He's not back. The matter is before the national disciplinary committee.— Zizi Kodwa, ANC spokesperson
