COSATU has criticised the ANC for not being “as candid as we would expect” about corruption among its leaders.

ANC members should beware of supporting leaders who have been criminally accused, it said.

Leaders who face criminal allegations, based on credible evidence should resign until the allegations have been fully investigated.

Cosatu, which earlier this year established its own anti-corruption unit called Corruption Watch, yesterday published its response to the ANC’s policy discussion documents, which will be debated at the party’s conference next week.

It suggested 13 ways for the ANC to strengthen its organisational renewal discussion document, most of which are about corruption or ways to strengthen accountability of politicians.
