'We must allow an investigation into corruption allegations to take place'
Boy Noko, ANC secretary of the Ngaka Modiri Molema region has denied that premier Supra Mahumapelo is 'deeply unpopular'.
That's despite violent protests in North West and calls by residents for Mahumapelo to step down.
Noko says residents must allow for investigations into corruption to take place and says the current protests are criminal.
The issue of the allegation of corruption, as the region we are saying, let us give the relevant department's time and allow the investigations to take place.Boy Noko, ANC Secretary Ngaka Modiri Molema region
We are saying, if you are saying the premier must step down... why do you keep quite about the MEC who is responsible to that department?Boy Noko, ANC Secretary Ngaka Modiri Molema region
