The ANC’s National Executive Committee has decided that every member of the party must act against incidents of ill discipline.

ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe says that if this is not done, then the party will lose the respect it has earned over nearly the last 100-years.

This comes just days after the party’s National Disciplinary Committee charged Youth League leader Julius Malema, and spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, with misconduct.

They stand accused of a number of violations, including bringing the party into disrepute. The pair will face a disciplinary hearing next week.

He added that the ANC would lose the respect it has earned in the Southern African Development Community and on the African continent, if it does not act now.
