JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) has seemingly changed its tune on allegations emerging from the state capture commission of inquiry.

Earlier, the party said it would stand by its members implicated in testimony and make submissions to the Zondo Commission in due time.

It now says some evidence should be dealt with immediately and not at the end of the inquiry.

ANC national spokesperson Zizi Kodwa says, “The ANC categorically said the law enforcement agencies must act where there’s overwhelming evidence of wrongdoing and criminality. On our part, the ANC will not wait. The impact on the integrity... we will continue to engage on that. That's why we have an integrity commission.”
