ANC takes M&G to Press Ombudsman

The African National Congress has lodged a complaint against the Mail & Guardian with the Press Ombudsman, the party said on Friday (20 September).

ANC national chairwoman Baleka Mbete submitted the complaint to the ombudsman this week over reporting about her on September 6 and 13, spokesman Jackson Mthembu said.

“The ANC supports the national chairperson’s assertion that the Mail & Guardian has deliberately sought to distort and misrepresent information,” he said.

The newspaper reported that mining company GoldFields “buried” a New York law firm’s finding that a R25 million share allocation to Mbete constituted bribery.
