ANC Gauteng secretary-general Jacob Khawe announced on Sunday that the party in the province has decided that MP Boyce Maneli and Merafong Mayor Maphefo Letsie should step down from their positions.
Letsie has been asked to vacate her position because she failed to take action against officials who were implicated in the VBS scandal. Maneli, a former mayor on the West Rand, was also implicated in the collapse of the bank.
“The PIC findings is that although they could not establish that the two mayors were involved in acts of corruption, the PIC recommend that comrades Boyce Maneli and Maphefo Letsie should be held accountable for their failure to act against officials.”
Khawe said Johannesburg Mayor Geoff Makhubo, who was also being investigated on allegations of conflict, was cleared.
