ANC to meet ANCWL over ‘ill-discipline’
Bathabile Dlamini & Collen Maine are in trouble over comments made about the NEC & the Guptas.
JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) says it will first meet with the presidents of its Women's and Youth leagues before deciding whether to take disciplinary action against them for comments made about the National Executive Committee (NEC) and the deputy finance minister.
The party's Secretary General Gwede Mantashe on Sunday described Bathabile Dlamini and Collen Maine as being ill-disciplined.
Dlamini said all members of the NEC have secrets, and should they be exposed all hell will break loose, while Maine called for Mcebisi Jonas to be redeployed after he revealed the Gupta family offered him the top finance minister post before Nhlanhla Nene was fired.
Mantashe says the comments are a reflection of an environment of ill-discipline which currently reigns in the ANC.
On Sunday, he warned that the party's disciplinary committee is fully functional and takes decisive action.
Spokesperson Zizi Kodwa says the committee has not yet been able to meet with the two league presidents.
"The first thing we must do is to talk to people that are involved."
Kodwa says a decision to take disciplinary action against them will only be made after the meeting.
