ANC probes Gauteng election lists
Johannesburg - An ANC task team probing alleged nomination list irregularities in the recent local government elections has started its work in Gauteng, an official said on Tuesday.
"The ANC Investigating Task Team (ITT), led by NEC member and Home Affairs Minister Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, established to look into alleged irregularities and manipulation of ANC local government list processes, has begun its work in the Gauteng province," task team spokesperson Mbulelo Musi said.
Gauteng was the second province to be visited by the team, following the "successful conclusion of investigations into similar allegations in the KwaZulu-Natal province".
Musi said once all the provinces were investigated, the task team would compile a report and send it through to the national executive committee of the African National Congress.
Matter of urgency
He could not say when this would happen.
"We are trying to deal with it as a matter of urgency."
The task team has already visited the Ekurhuleni, Johannesburg and Sedibeng regions of the ANC in Gauteng.
"The task team... is scheduled to conclude its work [in Gauteng] by visiting Tshwane and West Rand regions in the next few days," Musi said.
The investigations were "proceeding well" and the team was getting "a lot of co-operation".
The ruling party set up a team earlier this year following complaints from within its ranks about the nomination lists for the local government elections that took place on May 18.
