'The ANC must do the honourable thing and let Kodwa go clear his name' says Precious Banda.

The governing party has confirmed receiving a letter from a woman alleging that its acting spokesperson, Zizi Kodwa raped the woman in an incident that took place in April last year at a private party.

Kodwa is the head of ANC Presidency at Luthuli House and has been acting as the national spokesperson of the governing party following the suspension of Pule Mabe last month who was accused of sexually harassing his personal assistant. Mabe has since been cleared by the ANC.

Rape is a criminal act, and we believe the woman. This matter has to be pursued with law enforcement urgency and we have called the woman to approach the law enforcement agencies as the ANC has advised so that the court can arrive at a determination.

Precious Banda - Convenor - ANC Young Women's Desk

The ANC's deputy secretary general, Jessie Duarte has confirmed being approached by the woman, and has advised her to open a rape case against Kodwa if she so wishes.

The governing party has not confirmed whether Kodwa will be asked to step down as the party's spokesperson and the head of the Presidency.

Speaking to Africa on the Weekend Breakfast Show, Banda says she believes Kodwa should step down while he has this accusation hanging over him.

The party must do the honorable thing and let Kodwa go and clear his name.
