The ANC appears to have fired one of its employees who’s been arrested in connection with a serious crime.
Joburg Mayor Herman Mashaba had alleged that one of the four cash-in-transit heist suspects recently arrested was an employee at Luthuli House.
In the #AfternoonDrive, Joanne Joseph chats to ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe about the disciplinary action that’s to follow and asks the spokesperson about the Former Minister of Land Reform Gugu Nkwinti alleged involvement.
We do not know who Herman Mashaba was accusing, but we conducted our own internal investigation says Mabe.
Once we had made certain discoveries of our employee being involved in certain crimes that we deem to be heinous given the allegations, we immediately moved, empowered by our own personal manual, to thoroughly dismiss him and activate our own code of conduct...— Pule Mabe, ANC Spokesperson
According to Rule 25, we will give a member the opportunity to express or present why their membership should not be suspended he adds.
Mabe says that it would be difficult for the ANC to employ people that are not members.
I’m just clarifying you on the position of the ANC, we have issued a statement says the spokesperson.
By the way, it doesn’t have to work according to 702, it has to work according to the ANC. I mean we are explaining to you our position.— Pule Mabe, ANC Spokesperson
Mabe adds that in their statement, they did outline that the allegations were viewed in a serious light.
Before you can dismiss a member from the party, the person who is implicated must be given the opportunity to make their own representation he says.
The ANC is a lawful organisation. All the steps that we take ought to be seen to be consistent with the rule that we have laid out for our own members.— Pule Mabe, ANC Spokesperson
