Deputy President David Mabuza will not be sworn into the National Assembly on Wednesday. According to a statement by the ANC, Mabuza has requested that his swearing in be postponed until allegations against him have been dealt with within the party’s Integrity Commission.

The statement says that the national officials of the African National Congress (ANC) received and agreed to a request by party’s deputy president, David Mabuza, to postpone his swearing in as a member NA.

Mabuza made the request in light of a report by the ANC’s Integrity Commission, in which he is alleged to have prejudiced the integrity of the party and brought the organisation into disrepute.

Mabuza has indicated that he would like an opportunity to address the Integrity Commission on the allegations.
