Johannesburg - Former Western Cape ANC chairperson Jeff Swart has been suspended for a year, SABC news reported on Wednesday.

Swart was found guilty of "undermining the respect for and impeding the functioning of the structures of the organisation and provoking divisions and the breakdown of unity within the ANC".

However, the provincial disciplinary committee said that his sanction was suspended for two years on the condition that he did not repeat the offence.

The party said Swart pleaded guilty and apologised for remarks he had made to newspapers about the provincial leadership of the party.

    The members of the ANC can't agree with one another. One day they are all comrades, the next day COPE is formed. One day julius says I will kill for zuma, the next he calls zuma a dictator and crying how the anc used him like a condom. I have never seen so much division in any party yet their objective is 'working together to build unity'

      ANC is controlled by communist party,so no one person is ever to blame.collectivly they are as bright as the dullest person in the room,that is why we are in our current situation.We are managed by appointed cadres who know f all about governance.

    why didn't they just redeploy him, thats standard ANC policy

    So... if an anc member is exercising his democratic right (and the anc claims it is a democratic party who listens to its members) he is sanctioned! Sounds like a totalitarian party to me. Vote DA for democracy!
