ANC bosses to handle issues surrounding Brian Molefe’s membership
The African National Congress in the North West says it has handed over issues around Brian Molefe’s membership to the national leadership.
JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) in the North West says it has handed over issues around Brian Molefe’s membership to the national leadership.
This comes as FNB says it cannot confirm or deny if it has suspended one of its employees over a deposit slip linked to Molefe.
Last month, ANC leaders in Madibeng produced Molefe’s paid membership application forms from 2011 to 2015 as evidence that he had been a member in ward 29, while another ANC branch in Pretoria claimed him.
One of the documents produced by ANC members during a media briefing showed a bank stamp, which reflected the back office, instead of a teller number. This prompted FNB to investigate Molefe’s membership form.
ANC North West spokesperson Dakalo Legoete says the issue is now with the party’s secretary general, Gwede Mantashe.
Meanwhile, the ANC says it will meet with FNB to seek clarity on its investigation into the authenticity of Molefe’s membership.
Molefe was recently sworn in as a Member of Parliament after the provincial party nominated him to fill a vacancy in the National Assembly.
