ANC veterans applaud David Mabuza's decision to step aside temporarily
African National Congress (ANC) veterans have applauded party deputy president David Mabuza from postponing his swearing-in as a Member of Parliament.
On Wednesday morning, President Cyril Ramaphosa released a statement saying Mabuza had requested a postponement of his swearing-in to deal with the party's integrity commission’s report, which said he had prejudiced the integrity of the organisation and brought it into disrepute.
ANC veteran Mavuso Msimang says he does not want to speculate around the timing of the deputy president's decision.

The veterans have have also applauded former minister Malusi Gigaba for his withdrawal from the ANC’s parliamentary list.
