High-profile ANC politicians again have come out to support corruption-accused ANC MP Bongani Bongo for an appearance in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court.
ANC MP Bongani Bongo's corruption case at Cape Town Magistrate's Court will be transferred to the Western Cape High Court.
The official mantra of "innocent until proven guilty" each time a member appeared in court has worn a little thin and whilst it was pleasing to note that this phase was not used in Bongani's case, regrettably the statement gave no indication that appropriate action was going to be considered by the NEC.
Several former leaders of the ANC have come out to slam the party over its position on corruption-accused MP Bongani Bongo.
It is a stretch to say Bongani Bongo's arrest is a high profile state capture arrest. He is not even a high profile politician; he is merely a low level fixer who was inexplicably appointed to Cabinet by Zuma, writes Ralph Mathekga.
Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan has hit back at former state security minister Bongani Bongo's claims against him.

The chairperson of the portfolio committee on home affairs, Bongani Bongo, condemned "in the strongest terms" the acts of violence by refugees at the Central Methodist Church in Cape Town and outside the offices of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Pretoria.

ANC MP and former North West premier Supra Mahumapelo says he is planning to reveal who he believes is behind the supposed lawfare that some of the party's leaders are battling.
Those criticising the recently gazetted Refugee Amendment Act Regulations are "pessimists or prophets of doom", according to portfolio committee on home affairs chairperson Bongani Bongo.
The ANC’s integrity commission has recommended that MP Bongani Bongo, who stands accused of corruption, "step aside" from his ANC activities and positions, ANC integrity commission chairperson George Mashamba has confirmed.
Watching a nervous Pule Mabe trying to spin the ANC's response to Bongani Bongo's arrest and the reappointment of Bathabile Dlamini, almost made me feel sorry for him, writes Melanie Verwoerd.
The University of Limpopo Alumni and Convocation Gauteng Chapter has called on its president, and ANC MP Bongani Bongo, to step aside from his duties with immediate effect, following his arrest.
DA interim leader John Steenhuisen, who in October 2017 laid a corruption charge against then-minister of state security Bongani Bongo, has said the MP's arrest shows that "if we all stick to our guns and do the hard yards, we can eventually fix every part of our troubled nation".

While ANC secretary general Ace Magashule holds fast that there was no "SG's list" for the chairpersons of Parliament's committees, several ANC MPs sympathetic to former president Jacob Zuma will fill some of these positions. Most of them have a chequered past.
