ANC KZN Deputy Chair, Mabuyakhulu steps aside

The ANC's National Working Committee will enforce the party's step-aside resolution and suspend members charged with corruption or other serious crimes. This, if they refuse to step aside. In a statement released a short while ago, the ANC says it will write to affected members to inform them of the terms and conditions relating to their conduct during their suspension. eNCA’s Shahan Ramkissoon speaks to Political Analyst Ongama Mtimka. #eNCA​ Courtesy #DStv403

JOHANNESBURG - The ANC's deputy chairperson in KZN, Mike Mabuyakhulu, has announced that he is stepping aside. 

Mabuyakhulu was charged with corruption relating to the R28 million that the provincial government spent on the North Sea Jazz Festival in 2012.

This comes as the governing party's National Working Committee has made the decision to suspend members who refuse to step aside voluntarily.

ANC secretary-general, Ace Magashule, and several other party members are facing serious criminal charges, so they'll probably be the first to receive letters.

Political analyst Ongama Mtimka warns that Magashule could still find a loophole to the party's step-aside rule.
