Fransman questions credibility of ANC probe into sexual assault claims
ANC’s integrity commission has reportedly found Marius Fransman guilty of bringing the party into disrepute.
CAPE TOWN - Embattled Western Cape African National Congress (ANC) leader, Marius Fransman, has questioned the credibility of the party's probe into allegations he sexually assaulted his employee.
The ANC's integrity commission has reportedly found Fransman guilty of bringing the party into disrepute.
It has recommended he step down as party leader in the Western Cape.
But Fransman says he has not been formally informed about the commission's findings.
"I'm actually shocked and surprised that I must read about it on the media. Clearly the process of the integrity commission has been compromised, the alleged complainant has been offered a bursary by the same integrity commission members and they then said it was an error of judgement."
Fransman allegedly sexually assaulted Louisa Wynand during a road trip from Cape Town to the North West province earlier this year.
She opened a criminal case against him in January.
