The ANC Veterans League in the North-West province has called for the speedy resolution of the current leadership crisis that has sparked widespread protests due to calls for the resignation of Premier Supra Mahumapelo.

The call was made ahead of the arrival of a fact finding mission by the Inter-ministerial Task team led by Minister in the Office of the Presidency Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

Appointed by President Cyril Ramaphosa last week, the team including Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene, will probe the collapse of governance and alleged corruption in various departments including health.

The task team will compile a report which it will submit to cabinet next week.

In a statement, the party’s veterans league condemned the destruction of properties and the looting of businesses during protests.
