A top committee of South Africa’s governing African National Congress (ANC) has reaffirmed that all members charged with corruption or other serious crimes must vacate their posts within 30 days or face suspension, the party said on Tuesday.

The ANC added in a statement that the National Working Committee (NWC) had instructed that letters be written to affected members “implementing this decision, and outlining the terms and conditions regulating their participation and conduct during the suspension”.

The “step aside” rule is an important test of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s control over the ANC and his commitment to tackle graft.

One of Ramaphosa’s most prominent party rivals, Secretary-General Ace Magashule, faces corruption charges but has refused to vacate his position in charge of the day-to-day running of the party that has governed South Africa since the end of apartheid.

The NWC comprises top ANC officials and implements the decisions of the party’s executive.

The ANC said that at a meeting on Monday the NWC had received reports on party members charged with corruption or other serious crimes and the status of their cases.

A decision by a member to voluntarily “step aside” from their post would be reviewed by the party every six months, it added.

Disband!!!!

In addition it will in typical fashion take decades for the wheels of justice to turn.

So many of these people will be long past retirement age before there is any result.

I wonder what Carl is going to do now?

Clever Marketing trick or a sign of good things to come

Rah Rah Rah — and nothing will happen !!

Why don’t those you don’t like the ANC leave!! I’m sure the EFF would welcome a batch of new thugs.

If applied literally, will there be any ANC members left as members?

That means the one ANC faction that have been outed for corruption ‘step asside’ while the others, complicit in corruption but not yet outed try step out of the corruption limelight.

End of comments.
