A preliminary report by the ANC's integrity committee – reportedly containing a recommendation for embattled Northern Cape ANC chairman John Block to resign as finance MEC – has been sent back for finalisation, the ANC has said.

“The work they are doing is incomplete ... The report has been sent back to be processed by the national working committee,” said ANC national spokesperson Zizi Kodwa.

Kodwa declined to comment on whether a recommendation that Block resign was included in the report -- citing its preliminary nature.

“A preliminary report means it is a work in progress,” he said.

The alleged recommendation was noted in an article by the Sunday Independent, which also detailed that the report confirmed there was an internal investigation of National Executive Committee (NEC) member Pule Mabe.

“We can't confirm leaks,” said Kodwa today.

Block – along with other accused – currently faces fraud, corruption and money laundering charges related to government building leases.

Block has pleaded not guilty.

Mabe – a former ANC Youth League treasurer – is involved in a case in the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crimes Court related to the alleged defrauding of the SA Social Security Agency.
