CAPE TOWN – The African National Congress (ANC) has not laid disciplinary charges against outspoken Member of Parliament Makhosi Khoza, the party’s national spokesperson Zizi Kodwa has confirmed.

Khoza has called for a secret ballot when the motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma is debated in August.

She was criticised by ANC chief whip Jackson Mthembu for speaking out on the sidelines of the ANC’s policy conference last week.

Khoza has also told of attempts to intimidate her, including death threats directed at her and her daughter.

Kodwa says no complaint about Khoza’s conduct has so far been submitted to Luthuli House.

“We haven’t received anything from Parliament about her conduct and the ANC has not laid any charges against her.”

But he says the ANC is concerned about Khoza’s conduct, saying she should first raise her issues within ANC structures.

“Come to your own organisation, Dr Khoza, raise whatever issues in order to strengthen the ANC.”

Khoza is adamant MPs should vote in secret in the motion of no confidence in the president on 8 August, saying ANC MPs need protection from the victimisation and harassment she and her daughter are experiencing.
