ANC takes M&G to press ombudsman

The African National Congress has lodged a complaint against the Mail & Guardian with the Press Ombudsman, the party said on Friday.

ANC national chairwoman Baleka Mbete submitted the complaint to the ombudsman this week over reporting about her on September 6 and 13, spokesman Jackson Mthembu said.

"The ANC supports the national chairperson's assertion that the Mail & Guardian has deliberately sought to distort and misrepresent information," he said.

The newspaper reported that mining company Gold Fields "buried" a New York law firm's finding that a R25 million share allocation to Mbete constituted bribery.
