New leaders in Gauteng ANC

2010-05-24 20:10
Johannesburg – The ANC in Gauteng has included three new members in its provincial leadership structure to cement its ties to workers, the Afrikaner community and the Indian community.

ANC Gauteng provincial secretary David Makhura on Monday announced that Debbie Raphuti, serving trade unionist, and MPs Ismail Vadi and Gerhard Koornhof were co-opted into the provincial executive committee.

"The ANC is a non-racial organisation seeking to represent all South Africans," Gauteng party chairperson Paul Mashatile said.

In doing so the ANC itself should reflect South African society, he said.

"It is to show that the ANC is home to everyone."

Mashatile said this did not mean ANC leaders could not reach out to communities other than their own, but added: "No one will dispute that Dr Koornhof will do that better than me."

Mashatile and Makhura were addressing the media after a provincial executive committee meeting held over the weekend.

During the meeting the PEC agreed on establishing an "integrity committee".

ANC leaders and public representatives in the province would have to declare and register their business interests with this committee once it was up and running.

The committee is the first of its kind in the ANC.
