The African National Congress Women's League (ANCWL) has called on the ANC to consider suspending its national spokesperson Pule Mabe, following allegations of sexual harassment.
Mabe's personal assistant has accused him of wanting to have sex with her in exchange for the job.
The women's league says Mabe must be suspended pending the outcome of the case.
The women's league secretary general Meokgo Matuba says they expect the party to act quickly on the matter.
We feel that women deserve better. Their rights are also human rights and therefore we must be treated with respect. We expect the ANC to act very fast on this matter.— Meokgo Matuba, ANC Women's League secretary general
We expect leaders of the African National Congress to lead by example and discipline whoever violates women's rights within our organisation.— Meokgo Matuba, ANC Women's League secretary general
We think that the African National Congress in the meantime, must appoint someone. Let him be relieved of his duties and begin to deal with this matter in a proper organisational way.— Meokgo Matuba, ANC Women's League secretary general
