ANC hopes to complete Fransman case before elections
The WC ANC leader is under investigation after he allegedly touched his personal assistant inappropriately.
CAPE TOWN - The African National Congress (ANC) in the Western Cape says it hopes a sexual harassment case against suspended provincial head Marius Fransman will be finalised before the municipal polls.
Fransman is under investigation after he allegedly touched his personal assistant inappropriately in January.
ANC Western Cape spokesperson Yonela Diko says the party's national disciplinary committee is dealing with the sexual harassment allegations against Fransman.
"At an appropriate time as an executive committee, after being briefed by the NDC on the outcome, they'll come to us to give us the outcomes."
Diko says provincial leadership is not too concerned that the issue will negatively affect the ANC when voters go to the polls to elect ward and municipal office bearers.
President Jacob Zuma yesterday announced that the local government elections will be held on 3 August.
