ANC mulls integrity committee

2010-08-17 20:01
Johannesburg - A proposal for the establishment of an integrity committee has been put forward for discussion at the party's National General Council, ANC organiser Fikile Mbalula said on Tuesday.

"In order to protect the image and integrity of the movement and its leadership, it is proposed that a integrity committee should be established at national, provincial and regional level," Mbalula said.

The committee would be tasked with looking into ANC members on possible "conflicts of interest" of those who hold office in the State and the party.

Its role would be investigative in nature. The outcome of probes it would undertake would then be referred to a disciplinary committee if necessary.

"This will protect ANC leaders from false accusations and malicious allegations of corruption and abuse of power," Mbalula said.

The proposal for the committee was being discussed within the ANC structures and the process will be taken further at the party's NGC in September.
