Motshekga says ANCWL did not communicate with her, ran to media

Former ANC Women’s League (ANCWL) president Angie Motshekga has hit back at the league over allegations that she is trying to lead the organisation “from the grave”.

The Women’s League says it has received reports that Motshekga is organising events under the banner of the ANCWL despite not having the mandate.

Motshekga has labelled the allegations as "unfortunate" and says she was unaware of any issues between herself and the ANCWL prior to media reports.

She says that a formal complaint should have been made through the right channels, instead of mixing up institutional processes with the media.

According to Motshekga, no one from the ANCWL has raised issues with her directly.

I was not aware that we have issues with them, I only saw on TV. I was not aware of the beef.

There seems to be a problem. It has not been communicated with me on any platform, except for TV.

They still have to tell me what made them to run to the media and complain about me.

Motshekga maintains that she has the right to speak at public platforms where she is invited.

I don't need to organise anything. I don't need to ask permission from them. I'm the former president of the ANCWL and they can't take that away from me.

Angie Motshekga, former ANCWL president

I have the right to freedom of speech, as a individual, intellectual and politicians.

She says that she has a preferred candidate in the ANC presidential race but will not make public announcements at this stage, in respect for ANC practices.

She also discussed law enforcement's response to the leaked Gupta emails, how contestation is polarising the ruling party and the relevance of the ANCWL.
