Ex-Health MEC Masuku to take his disciplinary appeal to ANC at national level

JOHANNESBURG - Former Gauteng Health MEC Bandile Masuku on Monday said he would now take his Gauteng ANC disciplinary outcomes appeal to the African National Congress (ANC) at national level.

The provincial disciplinary committee found Masuku guilty of bringing the ANC into disrepute over his department's personal protective equipment tender saga, which saw him being axed from his job.

Masuku and presidential spokesperson Khusela Diko were hauled before a disciplinary committee after his department awarded her late husband Madzikane Diko a multimillion-rand tender.

Speaking on Radio702 on Monday, the former MEC said he was appealing the outcome: “After I looked at the verdict, there are some things that are procedural that need to be sorted out by the national disciplinary committee.”
