“Makhura must replace Masuku urgently,” says ANC PEC


The Gauteng ANC Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) wants the appointment of a new Health MEC done urgently by Premier David Makhura.

Makhura fired Dr Bandile Masuku following an investigation by SIU, who reported that he failed to carry out his job roles in terms of the Public Finance Management Act.

Makhura mentioned that he won’t appoint a new Health MEC until there’s been a finalisation as regards the investigation.

Transport MEC – Jacob Mamabolo, is currently acting in the position.

The PEC also wants Masuku and Presidential spokesperson, Khusela Diko, to be handed over to te disciplinary committee of the ANC.

The outcome of the DC will determine if both comrades should continue being PEC members or not,” the ANC said in a statement.

In order to protect the integrity of both the ANC and the affected members, the PEC resolved that comrade Bandile Masuku and Khusela Diko should not participate in organisational processes that relates to the finalisation of the PEC decision.”
