The ANC Women's League yesterday called for the immediate suspension of Mbulelo Goniwe, the ANC's chief whip in the National Assembly, pending the investigation of sexual harassment allegations made against him.

The league said it had received a report from the ANC women's caucus in parliament about the allegations against Goniwe, which it viewed as being very serious in the context of entrenching women's rights in South Africa.

"We therefore condemn in the strongest possible terms any act of sexual harassment and any abuse of office for sexual or any benefit.

"We call for the immediate suspension of the ANC Chief Whip in the National Assembly pending investigations," the league said. - Sapa
