Cape Town – African National Congress Western Cape leader Marius Fransman will continue to head the party in the province while an investigation into alleged sexual harassment charges against him continues.

In a press conference on Saturday, acting secretary Thandi Manikivana said the decision was made at a provincial executive committee meeting on Friday.

The matter has been referred to the national ANC integrity commission in the meantime for Fransman to give his side, the party said.

“The PEC came out in support of Comrade Marius Fransman to continue to lead the ANC in the Western Cape and its programmes. Fransman, as a seasoned comrade, has all the capabilities and capacity to lead the ANC, especially at the time of going into the local government elections.”

The party called for law enforcement agencies to finalise their investigation into the allegations against Fransman speedily and conclude the investigation.

Fransman is facing charges of sexual harassment after a 20-year-old woman accused him of "inappropriate touching" while they were on their way to Rustenburg in the North West for the ANC's 104th anniversary celebrations last weekend.
