Johannesburg - The ANC's integrity committee - which comprises veterans such as Frene Ginwala, Ahmed Kathrada and Andrew Mlangeni - has been given more teeth, allowing it to make binding decisions rather than mere recommendations.This was resolved by the party's national executive committee. But there are some party members who do not think the committee should be able to make unilateral decisions, despite the resolution that its decisions would be binding."Some of the pronouncements will be on the ANC NEC's members [and] that is why it has been decided it's binding," NEC member Joel Netshitenzhe told News24, speaking on the sidelines of the National General Council on Sunday, following a briefing on the balance of forces discussion document.NEC member and Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa said the ANC realised that "something drastic needs to be done".However, ANC Youth League treasurer general Reggie Nkabinde said there were some delegates who were of the opinion that any decision taken by the integrity committee should be processed by the NEC."You can't create a parallel structure that stands on its own and takes decisions that are not processed by the NEC," he told News24."Whatever subcommittee you create, ultimately it must be able to know where it accounts [to] and that's the stand we have been taking."He said this was part of the discussion at the NGC but pointed out that it was not the posture of the ANCYL.
