ANC probe on candidate lists continues
Johannesburg - An ANC team probing alleged irregularities in local government candidate lists has concluded its work in three provinces, the party said on Tuesday.
The African National Congress said Gauteng, Free State and KwaZulu-Natal were done.
The task team, headed by Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, who is also home affairs minister, will start work in the Northern Cape on Wednesday.
ANC president Jacob Zuma announced in April, ahead of the May 18 local government elections, that a team would investigate how popular candidates were removed from the ANC's candidate lists.
Protests erupted across the country over the nomination of ANC candidates - who were selected for the first time with community involvement.
Their frustration led to court challenges against the ANC in the Eastern Cape. In the Western Cape the party offices were stormed and the provincial leadership threatened.
