ANC national shutdown just ‘rumour mongering’- Mashatile

Reports of a national shutdown by ANC members in protest against the step-aside rule are just rumour-mongering, according to ANC Treasurer-General Paul Mashatile.

He says ANC members are disciplined and will follow the guidelines of the party’s constitution.

According to this rule, members facing serious cases must step aside.

Some ANC members believe the step-aside rule is targeting the party’s Secretary-General Ace Magashule, who is facing fraud and money laundering charges.
