ANC SG can question Hanekom's fitness as disciplinary chair, explains Mkhize

ANC Treasurer General Dr Zweli Mkhize says the party's secretary general Gwede Mantashe is empowered to initiate processes to have ANC NEC member Derek Hanekom replaced.

The secretary general, officials and the national working committee can initiate processes that will ultimately be tabled for the NEC to take a decision.

Hanekom was apparently given 10 days to show cause as to why he should not be removed as chairperson of the ANC's disciplinary committee.

The matter will ultimately end up serving at the NEC, that is the one that will making up decision on the matter.

There are many thorny, controversial issues that we are trying to manage at the ANC.

Mkhize says that a proposal has been made for ANC members to step down, until they are cleared in matters which implicate them and bring the party into disrepute.

At the same time, Mkhize says accountability mechanisms need to be strengthened at state-owned enterprises (SOEs) such as Eskom and SAA.

Our expectations ate that state-owned enterprises must be able to operate without needing government guarantee.

Mkhize spoke on the state of governance in SA's SOEs and within the ANC, as well as challenges facing the economy.
