ANC rejects allegations of impropriety at PRASA

26 August 2016

The African National Congress rejects the allegations contained in a News24 article “ANC implicated in PRASA bribes” implicating the organisation in bribery and corruption. According to the story, a series of payments were purportedly made to the ANC by a company awarded the contract to supply locomotives to the Rail Agency.

The ANC has not received any such funds from the companies concerned and condemns in the harshest possible terms rumour mongering and the use of the name of the organisation between individuals in their personal deals with no mandate from the party.

The ANC appreciates that the matter is before the courts and will attentively watch the outcomes of this process. We reserve our rights to take action against those who impugn the reputation and integrity of the African National Congress.
