Johannesburg - The ANC in the Western Cape will institute its own investigation into the removal of Cape Town councillor Andile Lili, it said on Sunday.

"The ANC regional executive committee has, at a meeting on Saturday resolved to institute its own investigation," the African National Congress said in a statement.

"The committee determined that the allegations levelled against Lili are, on face value, of a serious nature and are therefore referred for investigation to the disciplinary committee due to start with its task."

According to the ANC, Lili was sacked by the Western Cape local government department on Friday.

Last year, Lili was found guilty of making derogatory remarks to Khayelitsha resident Bongiwe Gugushe during a committee meeting.

He told Gugushe she would "have to give birth in a drain or in the bush".

The ANC said the city's multi-disciplinary committee had also found him guilty "without any legal basis" of:

- Demanding that Gugushe move out of her home, or demolish it;

- Leading a group to illegally demolish the home of another Khayelitsha resident;

- Entering the house and removing household items; and

- Calling a resident a thief and a witch-doctor at a community meeting.

The ANC said Lili will be given a chance to state his side of the story.

The committee would recommend to the provincial ANC that Lili be suspended from taking part in any party activities pending the outcome of the investigation.
