Andile Lungisa may end up on the carpet for attacking ANC’s Gwede Mantashe
The attack by the ANC’s Andile Lungisa on party secretary-general Gwede Mantashe could lead to Lungisa explaining himself to the party’s top disciplinary body
Andile Lungisa, the ANC’s new Nelson Mandela Bay regional chairman, could be hauled before the party’s top disciplinary body soon to explain why he attacked secretary-general Gwede Mantashe days before his election at the weekend‚ The Herald reports. In a confidential letter sent to Lungisa on Friday‚ Mantashe slammed his behaviour as contemptuous. Mantashe said he had reported Lungisa to the ANC’s top six and laid a complaint for what he called a personal attack by Lungisa published in The Herald last week. At issue was Mantashe’s belief that Lungisa should not stand for election as the party constitution prohibited him‚ as a provincial leader‚ from contesting a seat in the regional structure.
