ANC investigates food parcel looting allegations
Written by Lethiwe Mdluli on 7 May, 2020
ANC provincial secretary, Mdumiseni Ntuli, says they are concerned about the manner in which some members are handling the distribution of food relief packages in the province.
Ntuli had been briefing media in Durban on the outcomes of the PEC’s monthly ordinary meeting on COVID-19.
Councillors and some ANC officials are accused of looting food parcels meant for the poor.
Most of these complaints came from eThekwini, Moses Mabhida and lower south coast regions.
Ntuli says the party’s provincial working committee is investigating all allegations.
Ntuli also says food relief packages distributed to communities must be checked thoroughly if they are healthy for consumption.
He says they will not allow any company or NGO’s to willingly provide any service below the standards of human beings.
