THE Sunday Times stands by its story yesterday that Jessie Duarte intends to resign from her position as chief operations officer in the Presidency .
"The story is definitely true. She wrote the letter herself," the editor, Mondli Makhanya, about an e-mail sent by Duarte to ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe announcing her intended resignation.
"The newspaper did not say she had already resigned," Makhanya said.
Duarte, pictured, yesterday denied her intended resignation.
"The letter is not in dispute. She must explain what she meant in the letter rather than playing on semantics.
"Duarte tried to keep the paper from publishing the story when she was contacted for comment," Makhanya said.
The Sunday Times reported that Duarte intended to resign over disputes with deputy director-general in the Presidency, Lakela Kaunda, among other people. - Sapa
