The African National Congress says a investigation into embattled Western Cape leader Marius Fransman by the party’s integrity committee is an internal issue, which will not be discussed publicly at this stage.
The committee, led by party veterans, has reportedly recommended Fransman step down from his position for bringing the party into disrepute.
It relates to claims of sexual assault against the politician by 21-year-old Louisa Wynand.
The ANC’s Khusela Sangoni says the party won’t publicly discuss the findings of a leaked report.
Fransman says the integrity committee has not formally informed him about its findings.
He says the investigation had been compromised by political convenience, orchestrated by party’s intent on destroying his career.
