ANC to handover cadre deployment records today

The ruling party says it will hand over the cadre deployment records before end of business today; however, some records are missing and will only hand over those that are available, and will give an explanation.

Following the ruling by the Constitutional Court last week on 12 February 2024, turning down the ANC’s bid to appeal lower court’s ruling to make the cadre deployment records public; the ANC had five working days to release the records, the five days ending Monday, 19 February.

The DA has since threatened to lay charges against the liberation party should it fail to handover the records for contempt of court. The ANC did not take these threats well calling them fevered speculations.

The ANC says it has nothing to hide as some of its records dating as far back as 2018 to 2021 were subject to scrutiny at the Zondo Commission for State Capture, where the ANC’s President Cyril Ramaphosa and other national officials gave testimony.

“We have conducted a thorough search for minutes in the National Deployment Committee for the period December 2012 to December 2017; no minutes of the meetings of the National Deployment Committee for the relevant period could be found,” The ANC told the Commission at the time.

The Spokesperson of the ANC Mahlengi Bhengu-Motsiri says the DA is very much aware of these facts but they are deliberately choosing to misrepresent, threaten and engage in false expectations of what might be contained in the records.

“In his testimony to the Zondo Commission, President Cyril Ramaphosa committed that the ANC would do everything in its powers to find the records. The ANC has done so and will hand over all records that have been found, and give an explanation regarding those records which either do not exist, or have not been able to be found,” said Bhengu-Motsiri.
