Makhosi Khoza charged by ANC in KZN for ill-discipline
The ANC in KZN says that over the past few months it’s been watching Khoza using platforms other than party structures to air her views.
The ANC's provincial executive committee in KZN has confirmed that it served Khoza with a charge sheet related to ill-discipline.
Last week, the provincial party announced it would bring charges against Khoza for her public statements calling for President Jacob Zuma to step down.
She's apparently received death threats after speaking out.
Provincial Secretary Super Zuma said: “Yes we can confirm that comrade Makhosi Khoza was served with a charge sheet yesterday evening. She has already confirmed that she has received her charges. We are now looking forward to her to appear before the disciplinary committee.”
VIOLATION OF PARTY CONSTITUTION
The region says it’s charging Khoza with ill- discipline because she's violated the party's constitution.
The ANC MP has been outspoken about the party and the country's direction under the leadership of President Zuma.
Last week, the ANC in KZN described Khoza as a "loose cannon", who no longer represents the values of the party.
It criticised her public statements on Mandela Day, urging her fellow ANC MP’s to vote according to conscience and unseat President Jacob Zuma.
Provincial secretary super Zuma says they are unable to divulge the nature of the charges as this is an internal party matter.
“What we can confirm is that indeed she has contravened the constitution of the ANC and the policies of the ANC.”
Khoza is expected to appear before the ANC’s disciplinary committee on 10 September.
