A third ANC branch, this time on the West Rand, is claiming former Eskom CE Brian Molefe as a member "in good standing". This comes after the ANC in Ward 29 in Haartbeesport Dam claimed Molefe as a member and the party in Tshwane claimed he was a member of a branch in Irene, Centurion. Now the ANC in Ward 32, the Bazooka Mpetsheni branch, is holding a media briefing on Wednesday to "set the record straight on the misleading information that has been spread by some who claim to be the leadership of our branch when they’re not". "The ANC in Ward 32 maintains that comrade Brian Molefe is our member in good standing, and we are prepared to back this up with evidence," it said in an invitation to the media briefing. The branch said all executive committee members would be present at the briefing to answer all questions. The briefing would be held at the Maputle Primary School in Westonaria.
