I won't vote ANC if I don't get assurance certain names are removed - ANC vet

ANC veteran Mavuso Msimang explains why the vets wrote a letter to the ANC regarding the candidate lists for Parliament.

The count down to the 2019 general election has begun.

With political parties putting their final touches to their electioneering campaigns, the African National Congress is faced with another drawback.

The ANC Veterans' League has written a letter to the party asking it to remove certain names from its parliamentary list.

In the letter, the veterans express that some of these lists raise serious questions about the suitability of some of the candidates.

They further state that is their strong belief that candidates on the ANC list should be above ethical reproach, for that is what South Africans expect of the party that played a pivotal role in ushering in democracy in South Africa.

One of the signatories of the letter Mavuso Msimang told Eusebius McKaiser that it would be difficult to ask members of the country to vote for the ANC if such names are not removed.

It would be a very difficult ask. What we want of Cyril Ramaphosa and his co-leaders to do is to give us the assurance that these people if they don't get off the liest al they will be is MPs nothing higher than that.

Mavuso Msimang, ANC veteran

He further states if he doesn't get the assurance he will not vote for the ANC.

Could I still vote? No, I wouldn't. Absolutely note.
