WORLD NEWS TOMORROW – Breaking news -Cape Town – The ANC in the Western Cape says it will release a recording confirming community safety MEC Dan Plato’s “smear campaign” against its leaders.
Songezo Mjongile, the provincial secretary of the leading political party, the ANC, lodged a criminal case with the police on Friday that accused Minister Dan Plato of abusing his power, perjury and conspiracy to commit perjury. Mjongile from the ANC revealed on Sunday the ANC’s lawyers were transcribing the recording, but would hand it over to the Hawks on Tuesday.
This comes after the two political parties namely, the DA and ANC publicly accused each other in the Western Cape Provincial Legislature of being involved in gangs.
It is alleged that the recording indicated that Minister Dan Plato met a gangster under the guise of peace talks and told him he would use affidavits from another gangster as a smear campaign against Marius Fransman, the deputy minister of international relations and cooperation, as well as the Western Cape chairperson of the ANC.
“I am outraged that Plato has used information he obtained as a result of holding office as MEC, used that information to manipulate an NGO to compile an affidavit from an admitted drug addict, convicted criminal and known gangster in which he deliberately implicates the ANC in the Western Cape,” Mjongilestated.
Some reliable intelligence sources said that it’s high time to push this investigation further, as there is a lot more in the skeleton closet that meets the eye. The public protector of South Africa is to investigate the claims. The Minister Dan Plato promised to co-operate with any investigation against him.
