Umtshezi: mystery ANC list

2010-07-08 00:00

THE ANC in uMtshezi has distanced itself from a list purported to be from the organisation and circulating in the area with names of candidates for mayor, deputy mayor and speaker positions for the ANC after the 2011 local government elections.

The ANC’s uMtshezi regional secretary, Bongani Dlamini, said the person who is alleged to be circulating this list is not known by the ANC leadership in the area.

“The list process has not started in the ANC and we have not even commenced with discussions of who is going to be mayor, deputy mayor and speaker and even councillors.

“It is evident that those who are circulating lists and even those who are identified to be the so-called candidates do not know the ANC and its processes. Branches are the basic unit of the ANC and that is where the lists process will begin,” Dlamini said.

“We are well aware of the people who are using the ANC for their business interests and there are corrupt activities attached to such an act, which leads to people saying that the ANC is corrupt, whereas those people do not act on the mandate of the ANC,” Dlamini said.
