Johannesburg - Trade union Nehawu on Wednesday congratulated the ANC's top officials for speaking out against ill-discipline in the organisation.

"The African National Congress and government must at all times provide political and moral leadership to our society," National Health and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu) spokesperson Sizwe Pamla said.

"In this regard, they must act against sleaze and inept leadership across all structures of our movement and government."

This followed an ANC press briefing on Tuesday at which top officials said the party was united.

Zuma, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, ANC treasurer general Mathews Phosa, national chairperson Baleka Mbete, secretary general Gwede Mantashe and deputy secretary general Thandi Modise addressed the media in Johannesburg as a collective.

Pamla said it was about time ANC Youth League president Julius Malema's disciplinary process was also brought to a closure.

"The leadership now needs to focus on resolving the triple crisis of unemployment, poverty and inequality," he said.

The ANC's national disciplinary committee of appeal announced on Tuesday that Malema's appeal hearing against his expulsion from the party would take place on April 12.
