Fransman given green light to resume duties as ANC WC chairman
Marius Fransman was asked to step aside to allow for a probe into allegations of sexual assault.
Fransman was asked to step aside by the party's national leadership this year to allow for a probe into allegations of sexual assault.
Louisa Wynand, 21, claims she had just started working for Fransman in January when he fondled her and forced her to share a bed with him.
Fransman is on the campaign trail with President Jacob Zuma in Philippi and Khayelitsha today.
National Executive Committee member and head of ANC campaigns, Nomvula Mokonyane, has confirmed Fransman was told he can resume his duties.
"He is back in the ANC as the [provincial] chair. The issues have been resolved."
Fransman says it is crunch time for party leaders, with less than two weeks to go before the elections.
"There's 15 days left, I think, and we must all work hard to make sure the ANC is victorious everywhere in the Western Cape."
It's unclear whether the National Prosecuting Authority will proceed with a criminal case against Fransman.
