ANC Deputy Secretary General Jessie Duarte on Sunday confirmed that the party’s Secretary General Ace Magashule has received a letter summoning him to appear before the Integrity Commission.
Duarte confirmed this during an interview with eNCA’s anchor Karima Brown on The Fix that Magashule has received the letter from the commission’s chairperson George Mashamba.
“The SG has received the letter from the chairperson of the integrity committee requesting him to come and explain a remark he made in an interview he had… relative to him saying that he will not step down if he was accused. He will be going… he can’t refuse to go. At a time convenient to both that meeting will take place,” said Duarte.
Duarte also says the governing party will now be very strict on members accused of wrongdoing.
During the interview with eNCA, Duarte further confirmed that President Cyril Ramaphosa will also appear before the African National Congress’ (ANC) integrity commission over controversial campaign donations.
“He has made contact with the integrity committee and he will be presenting himself there for a discussion on the CR17 funds,” Duarte said during an interview with eNCA.
