ANC Denies Receiving Donations From Business People

South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC) has denied reports that its Treasurer General, Paul Mashatile, received money donations from a selection of business people.

South Africa Observer presents a statement issued by the ANC on the matter.

ANC STATEMENT ON DONATIONS

The Office of the ANC Treasurer General Comrade Paul Mashatile has noted with concern a misleading statement by faceless people who allege that a selection of business people donated money to the Treasurer General. The TG wants to place on record that the claim is not only false but also malicious and plays on the current challenges facing the ANC.

We view these fake news as designed to further cause confusion on the matter of staff salaries. We want to assure everybody that our challenges will be resolved based on a number of initiatives approved by the National Officials. These include crowdfunding. increasing membership fees and levies. We have already agreed with provinces to take over the salary bill in provinces and this came to effect in the past two months.



The ANC remains committed to resolving outstanding issues of delayed salaries.

The statement is issued as the party has been forced to scale back its campaigning ahead of upcoming municipal elections because it has run short of cash.

Paul Mashatile on Thursday said ANC will have to “tighten the belt,” adding that the party will do “what is economically affordable to us.”

Commenting on ANC’s financial crisis, some South Africans said the situation reflected what the ordinary citizenry is facing on a daily basis.

In the past, there were reports that the party was being funded by the Gupta family which in turn was indirectly influencing the country’s affairs.
