Another ANC leader steps aside pending corruption trial

Another ANC leader steps aside pending corruption trial

Ever since it was established, the ANC step aside rule has been derailed by controversy.

However, a growing number of party members are adhering to the guideline by resigning while their cases are being heard in court.

The flamboyant Tolly Mashamaite is the most recent ANC official to be ordered to do so.

Due to charges of corruption against him, the ANC in Limpopo announced that he would be demoted from his position as chair of chairs at the provincial legislature and removed from office altogether.

In Limpopo, Mashamaite is accused with numerous counts of corruption.

He is one of the 15 people and 13 legal entities (businesses) that the Mogalakwena Municipality has charged with corruption and fraud.

These accusations pertain to alleged tender irregularities that occurred between 2016 and 2019; the estimated value of the alleged corruption is R15 million.

The Limpopo courts are now hearing the case.
