The African National Congress is proposing drastic measures to prevent audio leaks from the national executive committee (NEC) meetings. The City Press reported that the measures include “severe penalties ” and the return to physical meetings instead of online platforms.
The newspaper added that NEC members would be requested to leave all electronic devices at the door.
They will also be under constant surveillance during the meeting to ensure there are no recordings.
The leaked audios have caused tension even within the ANC top six. This week, ANC deputy secretary-general Jessie Duarte accused ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule’s supporters of leaking NEC and Top 6 audio recordings and urged him to instruct them to stop bringing the party into disrepute.
