African National Congress (ANC) National Executive Committee (NEC) Lindiwe Sisulu has been summoned to appear before the party’s Integrity Commission.

Sisulu who is also Tourism Minister has been on the news, following an article in which she criticised the country’s judiciary and the constitution.

She later denied reports that she had apologised for the views she had expressed in the article.

This after President Cyril Ramaphosa told the nation through a media statement, that he had spoken to Sisulu in Cape Town and she had agreed to withdraw her statement.

Steve Motale confirms Minister Sisulu didn’t apologise for the judiciary comments:

There were counter accusations between the Presidency and Sisulu.

In the midst of all of this, Lindiwe Sisulu seems to be enjoying a full backup support from the so called RET Forces in the ANC.

In an  interview with  the SABC, ANC NEC Member Tony Yengeni,  agreed that Sisulu has what it takes to be the next party president – adding that she has a right to express her views on the Judiciary.

It remains to be seen whether the ANC will discipline Sisulu on the matter or not.
