ANC drops internal state capture probe over lack of evidence
ANC Secretary-General Gwede Mantashe expressed disappointment that, despite all the public allegations involving the party and Gupta family, only eight people came forward to lay complaints regarding state capture.
He said that of those eight individuals, only one of them was willing to offer a written statement in a formal complaint.
This comes after Mantashe promised political protection to anyone who had been approached by the Guptas and was willing to come forward with information.
According to EWN's Dineo Bendile, Mantashe says the internal probe has been a futile exercise for the party and they will no longer continue to investigate.
He has encouraged those who fear for their safety to consider laying charges with an independent body, such as the police or Hawks.
The ANC held a press briefing at Luthuli House following their National Executive Committee meeting over the weekend.
