ANC leader warns against graft
A MEMBER of the ANC's national executive committee, Enoch Godongwana, has urged members of the party to "take action" against corruption and the growing number of unemployed youths.
Godongwana was speaking on the the final day of the South African Municipal Workers' Union congress in Bloemfontein on Friday.
He said corruption was rife in government and that unionists should be concerned about the high unemployment rate.
He also complained that while the ANC was plagued by infighting, their opposition, the Democratic Alliance, was strengthening its campaign.
Godongwana was forced to resign as deputy minister of economic development earlier this year, after a probe into the disappearance of more than R90-million from the Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers' Union's pension funds.
"The country's biggest challenge now is the unemployment, Godongwana said.
