ANC denies bribing youths with drugs

2011-02-10 20:14

Pretoria - The ANC in Mpumalanga described as wild allegations that some members in Delmas were bribing youth members with drugs for election as candidates ahead of the local government elections.

This after the Democratic Alliance issued a statement on Thursday saying it had learned about this through a current affairs programme on Ikwekwezi FM.

The party's James Masango said this was echoed by an ANC member while speaking to the Nkangala district mayor Speedy Mashilo.

"The DA was shocked to hear this...ANC members are so obsessed with positions, personal benefits and power to such an extent that responsibility and morality means nothing to them as long as they get what they want," said Masango.

ANC spokesperson Paul Mbenyane said it was "mischievous of the DA to come up with "wild allegations without facts.”

Mbenyane said: "Who are ANC candidates anyway because the ANC has not yet pronounced itself publicly on the final list of those who would be its candidates for the 2011 local government elections.

"Let the ANC be allowed space to finalise its internal processes without any hindrance," said Mbenyane.

He said the ANC was a serious organisation and did not want to be reduced by entertaining the DA.

"The ANC would like to re-iterate its stance…that of being zero tolerant to any form of criminality no matter who commits it for whatever reason or motive."

    ....surely they can't have been bribes? They must have been selling them, the ANC would never give anything away for free.

      Zinky, are you that naive to believe anything that is being said by the DA about the ANC? The DA always talks about the ANC and not what they plan on doing, look at the policies for example. The ANC is always the 1st one's to issue out their policies to the public then the DA goes after the ANC and their policies are based on ANC policies.

      Well, these days they steal ARVs or mug people coming back from the clinics and crush them and smoke them and get very high. Saw it on Sky news about the addicts in Durban. So now the whole world knows about Woonga, the new drug which is meant to curb Aids.
