Ramaphosa Dodged A Bullet As ANC Dismisses A Disciplinary Application Against Him Because Of This

The ANC's deputy secretary-general, Jessie Duarte, responded to a group of 8 people who claimed to represent members in eight provinces and filed an application to the party in August, demanding that its national disciplinary committee investigate Ramaphosa. The organization alleged Ramaphosa breached parts of the ANC constitution by collecting millions of rands to assist finance his ANC presidential campaign in 2017.

The group also argued that the ANC constitution prohibited fundraising for the advantage of individuals and solely for the benefit of the party. Duarte responded to the group in a letter dated 4 October that News24 obtained, stating that the grievance had been submitted to the party's national disciplinary committee (NDC). The committee determined that it was not in the best position to address the issues expressed and submitted the complaint to the party's chief national presenter for disciplinary action. The NDC sought to know if the unhappy members had the legal right to initiate disciplinary actions.

"Only the officials, national executive committee, national working committee, provincial executive committees, PWC, the RWC, the BEC or office bearers of any of these structures have the right to invoke disciplinary proceedings under the ANC constitution," Uriel Abrahamse, the chief national presenter stated.

Abrahamse discovered no reasons for disciplinary measures, according to Duarte's message to Onica Maphisa, one of the application's signatories. Maphisa rejected the letter on Wednesday, claiming that Duarte and Abrahamse misinterpreted the group's request. The ANC's president, Sibongile Besani, rejected the group's accusations on Tuesday, calling them a "distraction" ahead of the local elections on November 1st.
