ANC national spokesperson Pule Mabe says Mokonyane has not been charged and that she is qualified for the job.

From where we are sitting, she is not charged. She is a seasoned cadre of the African National Congress with incredible experience.

She has come out herself and said if there was a need for her to respond to whatever issues, she is always available. Now comrade Nomvula, one of the things you will find encouraging with her is that she is not a person who is scared to stand up and speak. She is always willing to give her version.

Pule Mabe, Spokesperson - ANC

I can tell you, when the ANC made this decision it had considered all the facts at play. We are a responsible organisation, all the decisions we make are also embedded in helping us construct institutions that are responsive to the desires of our people.

Pule Mabe, Spokesperson - ANC

He explains the reasoning behind Amos Masondo's appointment.

The ANC believes in the notion of an inter-generational mix. Comrade Masondo, will be one individual that plays a greater role toward making sure that those of our new MPs that are being deployed in the NCOP are made to understand the discipline that comes with that kind of position.
