The African National Congress (ANC) has rejected the claims that it “planned to sell drugs to fund its 1999 elections campaign”.
These claims were contained in a statement by a former member of an elite investigating unit in the Western Cape High Court on Wednesday.
The late Isithwalandwe/Seaparankoe, President Nelson Mandela was mentioned in this claims.
“We would like to state categorically that the ANC’s main source of funding, for its day to day work and of any campaigns, has been and will always be from its membership fees and from donors. ” said the party in statement.
“We believe these false claims are, therefore, orchestrated to damage the good name of the late President Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress. ”
“It is regrettable and unfortunate that the story was published by News24, on the 3rd of May 2017, without seeking a comment from the ANC.”
