Johannesburg – Those who have breached the core values of the ANC will be brought to book, ANC Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa has promised.

Speaking at the ANC summit for academic and professionals at the Sandton Convention Centre on Wednesday, Ramaphosa said the ANC had been tainted by scandal after scandal.

“Yes you are right. We have been moving from scandal to scandal. We are a living organisation and it's an organisation that is made up of human beings. But what is important is that we make sure that members adhere to the core values of the ANC,” he said.

Warning transgressors, Rapamaphosa said for those in breach of those core ANC values, there must be consequences and accountability.

When the audience asked when transgressors would be held accountable, Ramaphosa said: “I can hear in unison you are all saying when, and that moment is now. It is going to happen. Yes, we are going to make sure that those who breach the rules of the ANC - the basic document which is the constitution - will be brought to book.”

His statement comes after questions arose about President Jacob Zuma's close relationship with the Gupta family last week. The wealthy family had allegedly exercised undue influence by offering senior ANC members Cabinet posts.
