PRESS RELEASE: Tlokwe mayor case reflects ANC corruption
The United Democratic Movement (UDM) accepts the Pretoria High Court's decision to dismiss the ANC application to nullify the council meeting at which Tlokwe mayor Maphetle Maphetle was unseated.
It is important to note that the individuals who are whistle-blowers are ANC Councillors, and that the ANC chose to be on the side of the Mayor, instead of conducting a forensic investigation.
We salute the whistle-blowers for having the courage to come forward, as it is apparent that the ANC is not ready to fight corruption, especially in its own ranks.
