The African National Congress (ANC) in Gauteng has threatened to take disciplinary action on members who publicly discuss internal matters.
Gauteng ANC’s Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) took the decision in its meeting held this week.
In a statement issued on Friday, the PEC said it had discussed the current debate on the CR17 campaign fundraising that involved President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Mzwandile Masina, the ANC’s regional chairperson in Ekurhuleni and a member of the PEC, has been outspoken about it on social media.
The PEC appeared to take issue with Masina’s public engagement on the matter.
The PEC has impressed upon all its members, its structures across the length and breath of the province to desist from engaging publicly on internal matters and misrepresenting the organisation’s position on issues.
All codes of conduct, disciplinary and related policies will be enforced as we drive the renewal process.Gauteng PEC
The PEC said ANC creates many platforms for engagement which members should use.
It said the CR17 controversy provides an opportunity for ANC to address intra-party political funding.
The PEC added that election of ANC leaders should be “beyond reproach, must be respectable and dignified, and must stand the test of public scrutiny.”
60-40 women representation
It also confirmed that discussions with ANC’s national leadership are ongoing on the matter of 60-40% women representation in Gauteng’s provincial cabinet.
Gauteng ANC will also hold pickets to escalate pressure on the scrapping of e-tolls.
