ANC probe into lists starts in Limpopo

2012-01-19 07:25

Polokwane - The ANC's investigation into alleged irregularities in the May 2011 local government elections candidate lists will start in Limpopo on Thursday.

Home Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, who heads the probe, said they would first meet with the party's provincial executive committee, the Limpopo ANC said on Wednesday.

Following that, there would be meetings with everyone involved in the list processes in the Peter Bokaba, Mopane, Waterberg, Vhembe and Sekhukhune regions.

The task team had already completed investigations in seven other provinces.


"We have made significant progress thus far due, by and large, to the co-operation and support we have been getting from all provincial, regional and branch structures," she said.

After Limpopo, the task team would head to the Eastern Cape. It would then compile a report to be presented to the ANC's national executive committee.

Before last year's May 18 local government elections, the ANC announced a new process allowing communities to select their candidates. There were however several protests around the country when popular candidates were removed from the ANC's candidate lists.

In one case residents in the Eastern Cape's OR Tambo region wanted the Independent Electoral Commission to reject the lists, which they claimed had been tampered with.

    ANC dishonesty is endemic in the organisation. It cannot be cured. The only course of action is to remove the ANC through the ballot. Make your vote count.

    They will spend more time on petty politicking then just getting on with doing the job. That is why services countrywide are in such a mess. They are all jockeying for a place at the pig trough. Sadly, greed is the motivator, and not to serve you and I - the public.

    Dubious individuals in the ANC are making it DIFFICULT for the party to render services to the people of South Africa.If we believe in the integrity of the South African CONSTITUTION,we should then not fear to vote for the Party which has the capacity to deliver to the people.ANC is currently,unfortunately,full of selfish,greedy characters!!!You do not have to look far to see what i am talking about.Where is the FREEDOM CHARTER?

    The ANC should investigate itself for freaking irregularities before looking elsewhere!
