No discussions happened around any action being taken against ANC members who refuse to appear before the Zondo Commission, Duarte says.

"We didn't discuss that, so I can't give an answer where there was no discussion."

Duarte is asked what the timeline is for an apology from Magashule. She says they are hoping for an apology "within this week". She says the NEC decided that Magashule should apologise to the ANC community and to South Africans. This letter which suspended the president was worrying, Duarte stresses.

Duarte: I want to make it clear. I am not the secretary-general of the ANC. I am not the acting secretary-general. I am the deputy secretary-general. The secretary-general is temporary suspended until the outcome of his criminal charge.

Duarte says the suspension of Magashule is temporary. She emphasises that it is only temporary. She says the rule was never about Magashule. She said there wasn’t a focus on one individual.

Duarte says [former president] Thabo Mbeki told the meeting that "we are a constitutional democracy and the detractors in the party want a parliamentary democracy". She says Mbeki’s criticism was well resourced. He asked the question: is the ANC still alive, and Duarte says he answered that.
