JOHANNESBURG - African National Congress (ANC) presidential candidate Lindiwe Sisulu has told Eyewitness News she doesn't understand why President Jacob Zuma still hasn't been taken through the party's disciplinary processes for bringing the party into disrepute.

During a sit-down interview with EWN, Sisulu revealed that she’s been pushing for the President to be disciplined.

She says a diagnostic report presented by ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe at the party's policy conference earlier this year, confirmed that scandals involving Zuma had caused unhappiness and cost the party.

Sisulu has taken issue with the fact that President Zuma still hasn't appeared before a disciplinary committee.

“I have been insisting that there must be a disciplinary process so that if there is an interpretation that if you put the ANC into disrepute, that is an offence.”

She says this worries her.

“If we all agreed at the policy conference that that is what happened to the president, why was he not taken through a disciplinary process? We have an integrity committee [and if they fail] they should take the matter to the disciplinary committee.”

Sisulu says the president must go through a disciplinary committee and be suspended if found to have brought the party into disrepute.
