JOHANNESBURG - The South African National Civic Organisation (Sanco) wants Gauteng Premier David Makhura to resign.

The ANC aligned organisation is accusing Makhura of poor leadership amid alleged PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) tender corruption in the province.

SUMMARY: Makhura speaks about PPE tender scandal

It says Makhura shouldn't have appointed Transport MEC Jacob Mamabolo to temporarily lead the provincial health department, adding Mamabolo has no medical background.

This follows Bandile Masuku's leave of absence over the controversial tender.
