UITENHAGE Ward 42 ANC Councillor Andile Gqabi has been expelled on Sunday from the organisation after he refused to resign when he was asked to do so.
The call for his resignation came after ANC Executive Member Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma found that his nomination for the 2011 municipal elections did not follow the corrected procedure.
Before the elections President Jacob Zuma had promised to resolved ANC supporters' complaints that the processes to select a candidate were not followed.
The ANC national office was ordered to investigate.
It was found that Gqabi was not their preferred candidate and he was given two choices - resign or be expelled.
“We’ve tried to persued Gqabi to resign but he wouldn't,” Nelson Mandela ANC regional Chairman Chippa Ngcolomba said.
In Dlamini-Zuma's report, released at the end of 2012, it was stated that Gqabi was chosen by a screening committee which had two members who were not in good standing.
Councillor Thembinkosi Mafana confirmed that Gqabi had refused to resign.
