Judges must declare interests - KZN ANC

2012-05-13 17:29

Newcastle - Judges must declare their financial interests, the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal resolved at its conference over the weekend.

This would "enhance transparency... [And the] promotion of ethical conduct", the premier's advisor, Cyril Xaba, said.

All public servants needed to disclose their interests - including judges.

Xaba was reading out the ANC's special resolutions taken at its provincial congress held in Newcastle this weekend.

The congress also resolved that judges had to recuse themselves from cases where they would have personal conflicts.

The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal was worried about the abuse of the judiciary by those "hell bent on undermining the ANC".

There needed to be a separation of powers, said Xaba.

Another special resolution taken was on the disbanding of the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) provincial executive committee by the national leadership.

Xaba said the disbanding had left a vacuum in the province.

"[We] call on the ANC national executive committee to resolve the issue and the ANC regions must continue to support the ANCYL in the province," he said.

The ANC in the province resolved that the party needed to regain support in the Indian, coloured and white communities.

Xaba said the party was battling to attract young Indian, coloured and white people. He said the PEC needed to accelerate programmes of recruitment in these areas.
