The African National Congress is dismayed by the fact that one of its employees was arrested and appeared in court allegedly for involvement in serious crimes.
Crime remains a serious cancer in our young democracy, and we must continue to fight it in whatever of its manifestations.
We support the efforts by the law enforcement agencies to investigate, arrest and charge perpetrators to such high priority crimes.
The ANC on its part is following its internal disciplinary policy for employees, and will ensure that appropriate action is taken.
