Cape Town - The ANC in the Western Cape will not comment on allegations of corruption at the Cederberg municipality until an investigation is complete, a spokesperson said on Monday

"[We] have been aware of the various issues and allegations that have been the subject of investigation in the municipality," Phillip Dexter said.

"The ANC will ensure that its members and councillors co-operate with the law enforcement agencies with respect to the investigation."

However, he said the African National Congress had started disciplinary processes.

On Sunday, the Hawks said it had seized computers and cellphones owned by the Cederberg municipality as part of their investigations into corruption in the municipality.

The search and seizure operation was conducted on Friday, Captain Paul Ramoloko said.

The Democratic Alliance said the Hawks investigation came after the party in Cederberg wrote to Public Protector Thuli Madonsela alerting her to "various issues of corruption and mismanagement".
