Western Cape Community Safety Minister, Albert Fritz, has been appointed as acting DA provincial leader for the next two weeks. This follows the 14 day suspension of provincial party leader, Bonginkosi Madikizela on allegations that he had falsified his academic qualifications.
On the provincial government website, Madikizela claims to hold a Bachelors of Commerce Degree in Human Resource Management. Fritz is the Deputy DA provincial leader. Meanwhile, the ANC in the Western Cape legislature has welcomed the suspension of Madikizela as Transport Minister.
However, the ANC leader in the provincial legislature, Cameron Dugmore, says the Code of Conduct Committee should have decided the matter.
