With or without step-aside, ANC has mechanisms to deal with the corrupt, says Kgalema Motlanthe

As delegates at the ANC policy conference debate whether the step-aside rule should be repealed or scrapped to make way for leaders whose political ambitions have been affected, former ANC president Kgalema Motlanthe has poured cold water on the endeavours. 

In an interview with the media on the sidelines of the conference on Saturday Montlathe, who has been charged with the responsibility of the ANC’s elections committee, told journalists that even if the step-aside rule was reversed, the party’s constitution makes provisions for members convicted of serious crimes to be expelled and have their membership withdrawn.
