JOHANNESBURG – Presidential spokesperson Khusela Diko and axed Gauteng Health MEC Bandile Masuku have been suspended from participating in the African National Congress (ANC)’s organisational activities pending disciplinary processes against them.

The ANC, at a media briefing on Thursday, confirmed late-night suggestions that the two would be hauled before disciplinary processes over their alleged involvement in the personal protective equipment (PPE) saga.

Masuku, his wife Loyiso and Diko were hauled before the party’s integrity committee in July over the multi-million rand tender issued by the Health Department to Diko’s husband.

ANC provincial treasurer, Parks Tau, said that the PEC welcomed Premier David Makhura’s decision to fire Masuku as Health MEC, urging him to move with speed in bringing stability to the provincial Health Department.

He said that while Loyiso Masuku, who serves as an MMC in the City of Johannesburg, can return to work, the other two – who are PEC members – have also been asked to refrain from participating in party matters.

“The PEC decided that comrade Bandile Masuku and comrade Khusela Diko should be referred to the provincial disciplinary committee of the ANC. In order to protect the integrity of the ANC and of the affected comrades, the PEC further decided that comrade Bandile and comrade Khusela should step aside from organisational activities pending the finalistion of the disciplinary process.”
