‘ANC using underhanded tactics’
NW ANC's China Dodovu says the party must say whether he has been suspended from its PEC.
JOHANNESBURG - North West Local Government MEC China Dodovu on Wednesday said the party must come clean on whether he has been suspended from the Provincial Executive Committee (PEC).
He claims he was only charged for his alleged involvement in the murder of ANC regional secretary Obuti Chika because he did not support President Jacob Zuma at Mangaung.
Dodovu was released on R20,000 bail earlier this week.
He said the provincial ANC is being malicious by not saying whether he has been suspended.
"If there is a decision or not they must say - because they work underhand. They use underhanded tactics to destroy us."
Dododvu also claims the Hawks are being used by political factions in the province.
The North West ANC said it could not confirm or deny whether Dodovu has been suspended, but on Tuesday told Eyewitness News it was waiting for an integrity committee to be set up before they decide whether to suspend him.
Others facing a charge of murder include North West provincial ANC Youth League chairperson Papiki Baboile, ward secretary Paul Molomonyane and councillor Itumeleng Molebatsi.
Chika was shot on 14 December in the driveway of his Klerksdorp home in the North West. He died in hospital.
