ANC Caucus Gauteng Legislature Chief Whip resigns
Honourable Brain Hlongwa resigns as Chief Whip
Tuesday, 30 October 2018
For Immediate Release
Honourable Brian Hlongwa resignation as the Chief Whip in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature
I, Thamsanqa Brian Hlongwa have requested the African National Congress (ANC) to relieve me from the position and duties of the Chief Whip in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature (GPL) at a date to be determined by the ANC in Gauteng.
This decision has been informed by the need to resolve the eight (8) year-long accusations, without having the matter aired in the courts of the country. Furthermore, the African National Congress is committed to natural justice and my continued stay as the Chief Whip in the GPL would have distracted the movement from its task of mobilising our people behind a program to unite, renew and create jobs.
I am deeply honoured to have served and led the ANC Caucus in the Gauteng Legislature.
Issued by Brian Hlongwa
