Bandile Masuku jumped the gun announcing ANC NDC had cleared him: SIU

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Special Investigating Unit (SIU) says former Gauteng Health MEC, Dr Bandile Masuku, jumped the gun when he announced that the African National Congress (ANC) National Disciplinary Committee had cleared him and suspended Presidential Spokesperson Khusela Diko of any wrongdoing.

This relates to corruption in the procurement of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Masuku was dismissed from his position in the Gauteng government after a finding of impropriety against him.

The SIU earlier found that Masuku failed in his duty to conduct oversight for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) tenders.

He now welcomes the committee’s decision saying it has restored his faith in the ANC and its processes.

SIU spokesperson, Kaizer Kganyago, says Masuku has definitely misinterpreted the committee’s ruling.
