David Masondo ‘shocked’ by ANC request that he step other than duties


“His response to the questions posed on the abuse of ladies had been disappointing, distasteful and patronising. Not solely has he not internalised the target circumstances dealing with girls, he didn’t even present an understanding on this concern reasonably blaming the media all through. Repeating slogans on the emancipation of ladies to the fee was not useful to his case.”

Masondo has hit again saying that when he approached the fee to debate the matter final yr when it went public, the chairperson had indicated to him that the group had initially declined to look into the matter.

“I need to say I used to be shocked once I was knowledgeable by the ANC integrity fee administrator, Cde Uriel Abrahamse on 23 June 2020, that I used to be anticipated to see the integrity fee following the request I had made round September 2019, as a result of I had already been suggested by the fee chairperson round November 2019 that the ANC integrity fee had mentioned the matter and agreed that there was nothing improper in me reporting a criminal offense,” Masondo stated in a written response on Friday.

“I acknowledge the recommendation by the fee given to me to think about stepping apart on the premise that I reported to the police what I thought to be a felony act of extortion, harassment and demise threats; which the fee appears to treat as a ‘home matter’; and, secondly, that I reported the matter to a improper part of the police — Directorate for Precedence Crime Investigation (additionally colloquially generally known as the Hawks), which in line with the integrity fee doesn’t take care of extortion.”

He says it’s unlucky this his strategy to varied constructions — together with the ladies’s league, younger communist league and the fee on gender equality — have been considered as an try and clear his title.

The fee additionally raised issues with the outsourced syllabus of the OR Tambo College. Masondo refers these issues to the board of the varsity.

“I’m conscious that ANC members and leaders serve on the behest of the ANC and are anticipated to uphold the values of the motion; and topic themselves to organisational processes. Your additional steering will likely be appreciated.”
