The ANC’s national executive committee has adopted a resolution calling for members facing criminal charges to step aside.
The ANC’s national executive committee (NEC) has given the party’s top six leaders a month to deal with matter as the party is one step closer on deciding Magashule’s fate by adopting guidelines governing its step-aside policy.
The committee says members affected should step aside voluntarily in line with the recommendations of the Integrity Commission.
The NEC has also tasked President Cyril Ramaphosa with making representations on behalf of the party at the State Capture Inquiry.
Former president Kgalema Motlanthe has been appointed as head of the party’s election committee.
The NEC also discussed COVID-19, the economy, corruption and strengthening state capacity.
