I'm not a Cope member: Piitso

MEC for roads and transport Justice Piitso has distanced himself from any dealings with the Congress of the People (Cope).

Piitso was alleged to be a functionary of Cope after he allegedly attended secret meetings arranged by former defence minister Terror Lekota in Gauteng.

Matters came to a head after his invitation by students of the University of Venda, who wanted him to help them launch a youth wing of the yet to be launched party.

The ANC asked Premier Sello Moloto to dismiss him and appoint the party's provincial chairman, Cassel Mathale, to his position.

His skin was saved by Moloto who reneged on implementing the decision, saying he was still consulting.

But Piitso told more than 5 000 people in Sekororo on Saturday that he was a disciplined member of the ANC and that his relationship with the ANC has never changed.
