“The NEC affirmed the fight against crime and corruption ... and reaffirmed its support, as per its conference and NEC resolutions for the commission of inquiry into state capture, chaired by Judge Zondo, [and] urges all its members and leaders to co-operate with the commission in the national interest, and to allow the commission to complete its work fairly and present its findings, without fear or favour,” the statement read.
It wanted officials and the national working committee to prepare for the appearance so the party could present a firm position against corruption, state capture and its impact on people and the country.
The statement also expressed support for the party's integrity commission which presented its report to the NEC for 2020.
“The NEC noted, with concern, that not all reports of the commission have been processed and tabled in the NEC. Consequently, the findings and recommendations of the commission in these matters have not yet been processed and decided upon by the NEC.
